Flavour Profile: Daiquiri

New Flavour: Daiquiri 

daiquarib

This means lime and rum, friends. What better way to celebrate a long weekend??

The world’s most famous daiquiri aficionado is non other than legendary booze hound (and, as it happens, genius author) Mr. Ernest Hemingway. Hemingway spent a lot of his life in Cuba, and when he was there he could often be found at one particular little bar, chain drinking daiquiris—his record was apparently sixteen in one night. 😐  That bar is still in Havana. Now called El Floridita, it opened in 1817 under the name The Silver Pineapple (“La Piña de Plata”).  (Best name ever.) We’d of course advise moderation with both your drinks and your desserts, but should you accidentally consume sixteen daiquiri macarons in a row (happens to the best of us!) we’re pretty sure you’ll still be in better shape than Hemingway was that night! A toast to long weekends with long, relaxed days, and, if you’re in the mood, long, sociable nights. Enjoy.

Hemingway, presumably having a long, sociable night.
