Hemingway Daiquiris, Finally

So, yeah. I had planned to make these daiquiris back during the Trish’s Pin It, Do It challenge, but I couldn’t find maraschino liquor anywhere. Finally, the brilliant hubby suggested I call Total Wine. I hadn’t thought of them, as there isn’t one super close to me, but I figured I could combine a stop there with some other places I needed to go. Of course, they carried two varieties! I went with the cheaper one, since it’s just a mixer. It was $16. The expensive one was $30. Also, the super helpful sales guy pointed me to an $8 bottle of white rum that he said was comparable to a Bacardi. I think he felt he had to throw me a bone since he also talked me into an eighty dollar bottle of single malt Scotch…

Anyway, on to the daiquiris. Yummy yummy yummy. Light, not too sweet, and you know you’re drinking alcohol. Rum, maraschino liquor, fresh grapefruit, fresh lime. Tumbler full of ice, sunny day, time to relax by the water with a book. I think Papa would approve.
