The Story Behind The Armagnac Daiquiri
The Hemingway Daiquiri is a classic that was created in Cuba and said to have been made specifically for Ernest Hemingway. It is the new go-to Daiquiri variation for many American bartenders.
I wanted to make a version with Armagnac to showcase a lesser-heralded spirit most people aren’t familiar with. Armagnac’s earthy notes work wonderfully with the grapefruit and Maraschino liqueur, and it lends a little rich caramel flavor as well.
- 2 ounces Armagnac
- 1 ounce lime juice
- ½ ounce grapefruit juice
- ½ ounce Maraschino liqueur
- Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.
- Shake hard to chill and combine.
- Strain into coupe glass.
- Garnish with an edible flower.
