because it sounds like some vague literary term, or a pernicious disease

The Hemingway Daiquiri

leave a comment »

ingredients :

White Rum, enough

2 ounces of simple syrup (recipe below)

juice of 6 – 10 limes, freshly squeezed, strained of seeds and pulp.


method :

In a large shaker, combine enough rum, the syrup and the lime juice over ice. Shake with vigour contemplating a writing style in which meaning is established through dialogue, through action, and silences—a fiction in which nothing crucial—or at least very little—is stated explicitly, (Thomas Putnam, 2006) until the outside of the shaker is frosty.

Strain out the ice as you pour into a glass, this should make several glasses, settle in for an all day drunk. Drink in the sun, pet your cat.

Simple Syrup.

In a heavy pan combine 1 cup of white sugar with 1 1/2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, stir until all sugar is dissolved, remove from heat and cool. Will store nicely in fridge in a sealed container.

The Hemingway Daiquiri, more fun than shooting yourself.

A cocktail that says "Yum, I'm drunk."

*please note, some other so called “Hemingway Daiquiri” recipes will call for Cherry Liqueur, or Maraschino Liqueur as a substitute for the simple syrup. Believe me when I tell you that Maraschino Liqueur is bullshit, you don’t need it, seriously, it’s the Hemingway theory of omission.
