#DOTW: Hemingway Daiquiri

I’ve got my first taste of the New York City summer today. Was it hot? Nope. It was clothes drenching humid. That is something I will never get used to as a Notrthern German. What I can get used to, however, is a refreshment in the form of a cocktail. The Hemingway Daiquiri is traditionally made with regular grapefruits and Maraschino liquor, but I mixed it up a little, and used pink grapefruits and a splash of grenadine. It’s delicious!!!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Bacardi (or quality white rum of your choice)
  • 2 oz fresh pink grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 oz fresh squeezed lime
  • 1/2 oz Grenadine

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, shake well. Strain into a martini glass, garnish with a lime slice.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
