Hemingway Daiquiri

The Hemingway Daiquiri is a cocktail made with rum, lime juice, grapefruit juice, maraschino liqueur, and sugar. It is one of the most well-known cocktails in the world. It was invented in Cuba by Constantino Ribalaigua Vert at El Floridita bar in Havana during Prohibition in the United States.
