Literary Libations

“Do you drink?”
“Of course; I just said I was a writer.”
-Stephen King

            For whatever reason, writers have long been associated with alcohol. (Whaaaat? I never drink! Well, rarely. Okay, only on occasion, I swear!) Some writers have even had a cocktail named after them! My favorite literary libation is the Hemingway Daiquiri. Here's my favorite recipe for it:

Hemingway Daiquiri
1 1/2 oz white rum
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1/4 oz white grapefruit juice
1/4 oz simple syrup
1/4 oz maraschino liqueur

            Shake ingredients together with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

“Write drunk; edit sober.” – Ernest Hemingway


  1. That Stephen King comment cracked me up. Thanks for the recipe. Rum is my favorite liqueur. Yum.

  2. I never realized I went to the Ernest Hemingway school of blogging ;)
