While the basic Daiquiri might be more classic, the Hemingway Daiquiri is certainly more storied. Apparently, this is the recipe Papa used to order when he was in Cuba, and it was invented specifically at his request. It forgoes the sugar of the original (as Hemingway was diabetic), and sets itself apart with grapefruit juice and maraschino liqueur.
This cocktail may also be known as

Papa Doble
