Hemingway daiquiri in a martini glass with a slice of lime.

Hemingway Daiquiri Recipe

This isn’t a boozy strawberry slushy out of a machine; the Hemingway Daiquiri is as crisp and cool as it gets, made with rum, lime, and grapefruit-- shaken until icy.

  • 2 ounces white rum such as Bacardi
  • 1/4 ounce maraschino liqueur such as Luxardo
  • 3/4 ounce grapefruit juice freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice freshly squeezed
  • 1/4 ounce simple syrup (see Notes)


  • Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake very well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass; garnish with thin lime slice, if desired. 


To make simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water together over medium-low heat in a saucepan. Stir until dissolved, then allow to cool before using. You can keep leftover simple syrup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 weeks.
