I just meant that what most people call a Hemingway Daq these days (Maraschino, grapefruit , Daq trinity) is really a Papa Doble/No. 3. Hassouni's right that the Papa Doble and the HemiDaq are historically distinct.

I am still confused.  When Hemingway walked into El Floridita and was handed a glass, what would be in it and in what proportion?

 

In my glass at the moment is Mississippi punch.

Can we try to keep things straight for 2 weeks or at least one thread page?

 

 

I have the authority of the Bum. And I know for a fact Rafa is consulting the same recipes for his Power Daiquiris  :laugh:

I had not tasted a daiquiri in a while, but I have a lot of seldom used rum and a lot of limes.  These were Embury's ratio, with Difford's suggestion of shaking with the lime peel:

I enjoyed them both.  My only complaint is they warmed up a bit while waiting for the pictures.  And I apologize for the hand held iPad photographs in front of the computer.

 

Now I suppose I could post the same pictures in the dinner thread.

What nuts are those?? They look great! Do you have a recipe if they're homemade?

Thank you, I am flattered.  They are ShopRite supermarket store-brand dry roasted salted peanuts.  My special recipe is to add a lot of extra salt.

Speaking of Denizen Merchant's Reserve, it was really great in the Daiquiri variation called Captain's Blood (named after the classic movie with Errol Flynn). Rum, lime juice, simple, Angostura bitters

Tasteful and balanced; gone in no time.
