You may recall the post I did about the Hemingway Book Order. It all stemmed from a conversation I had with my mom about how I hadn’t read The Paris Wife yet. And since I hadn’t read any other Ernest Hemingway books besides The Old Man and the Sea (in high school), she proceeded to tell me a few books I should read and in what order. So I did just that. I read all of the books the order, so it was high time I celebrated by drinking a Hemingway Daiquiri in collaboration with Hunters Alley — where those sexy cocktail glasses came from!
Always up for a photo shoot and day drinking, some of the gals in the studio enjoyed the Hemingway Daiquiri with me last week. Trust me — this drink is delicious. I highly recommend making it yourself!

The Hemingway Daiquiri Recipe (2 Options)
Option 1 Ingredients (via askmen.com):
1 1/2 oz white rum
1/4 oz maraschino liqueur
1/2 oz grapefruit juice
3/4 oz lime juice
3/4 oz simple syrup
Option 2 Ingredients (via foodandwine.com):
2 oz white rum
3/4 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz fresh grapefruit juice
1/2 oz maraschino liqueur
1 lime wheel, for garnish (optional)
Combine all the ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake and strain. For a frozen daiquiri, combine the ingredients in a blender with ice, blend, and serve.
A bit about Hunters Alley:
It is a new online resale marketplace to find unique vintage, pre-owned, handcrafted and artisanal items for the home. Hunters Alley provides a space for both individual sellers and professional vendors to list incredible finds and one-of-a-kind home pieces. Unlike other sites, Hunters Alley lightly vets and edits listings so that shoppers are given only the best to choose from (trust me, this is a huge time savings!). Shoppers can comment on listings, “like” the ones they love and follow the sellers so they can easily find them later.
