Master of Cocktails - The Hemingway Daiquiri

by Ben Ellefsen     14. July 2014 13:53

Master of Cocktails Hemingway Daiquiri

After a break from Daiquiris on #MasterofCocktails last week, they're back in force with probably the finest evolution of the drink – maybe with the exception of Artesian's Frozen Banana with Caviar... and I'll be having a crack at recreating that one in a few weeks' time incidentally... but this week we're going with The Hemingway Daiquiri.

He liked a drink or two did old Ernie, and this recipe is a fine legacy indeed. The theory here is essentially unchanged from the standard, only we're going to be replacing boring old sugar syrup with Maraschino. The original recipe also calls for a splidge of Grapefruit Juice. Not convinced it needs it myself but we'll stick it in anyway and you can easily omit it if you've not got grapefruits in (who does, usually?).

Master of Cocktails The Aviation

Right then chaps – we’re going to be making something that’s very much en-vogue at the moment for this week’s #MasterofCocktails: an Aviation.

Essentially, this cocktail is just a gin-sour with a dab of Violet Liqueur in it, but the sum of the parts is so much more than this. Also, as it's probably one of the least sweet sours you'll come across, it can still legitimately be called an aperitif.

Master of Cocktails Martinez cocktail

This week on #MasterofCocktails we made the Martinez – or rather, the more modern, gin-heavy version of the Martinez. We will, however, do the old-school, original version another time, as it's utterly delicious and a completely different drink.

As ever, you could mix-along by following the hashtag above on Twitter on Sunday from 6pm, and we've included the pics you posted below along with the recipe in full.

At the bottom you’ll also find the ingredients we’ll be using next week, but without further ado, let’s get started!

Master of Cocktails The Last Word Cocktail

Following on from The Negroni and The Scottish Gold Rush, we’re now entering Master of Cocktails’ third week – how time flies!

Each week you can follow along on Sunday evenings via twitter (#MasterofCocktails) and, in fact, from now on we’ll be letting you know what you’ll need for the following week, making it even easier.

(You can find next week's ingredients at the bottom of this blog post.)

Last night, we made one of my all-time favourites cocktails: The Last Word. These are just awesome. If you haven’t ever tried one then, frankly, we feel sorry for you. Fortunately, you can remedy this terrible state of affairs by following the simple instructions below...
