Daiquiri History:

Originally created by the La Floridita Bar in Havana, the daiquiri may have been made to suit the specific tastes of Ernest Hemingway, who frequented this bar. He is rumored to have said that if he really wanted to tie one on, he would order several double servings of this drink, hence the name "Papa Doble."

Although there are many variations of this drink, La Floriditaís classic ingredients make it exceptional - fresh lime and grapefruit juice, maraschino liqueur, and quality rum. The dryness of the Flor de Cana 4 year Extra Lite rum compliments the sweetness of the other ingredients.
