It is widely known that Ernest Hemingway enjoyed a drink or two and that he was quite picky about what he was drinking - he definitely had his preferences and the Daiquiri was one of them. In 1921 Contstanino Ribailagua, of El Floridita in Havana, created this variation in honor of his Daiquiri-loving regular. At the bar it was often served frozen and that's easy to do, just add 3/4-1 cup of ice to a blender.

For Hemingway himself, the Hemingway Daiquiri (aka Papa Doble or Hemingway Special) was served without sugar and is almost always printed that way although most people prefer the sweetness.
