Hal Ligon

Drink Type: Cocktail



Mix and serve over ice in a collins glass. History: The Hal Ligon originated in Key West sometime in the 1930's when famous local/author Ernest Hemingway and fishing buddy Hal Ligon began ordering the drink at nearby bars. The drink migrated north into mainland Florida but its name eventually evolved into todays Screwdriver. You can still order the drink by its original name in many south Florida bars and are encouraged to revive its name in your local pub or wherever drinks are enjoyed.
