I can see why they thought it might cure malaria...
I just tried make an authentic 19th century daquiri: a shot and a half of cheap rum, a half shot of lime juice, and a quarter shot of agave syrup. The Cubans seemed to think it might cure malaria. Well, it'll keep you ignorant of the symptoms, all right, but... yuck.

If I wasn't broke, I'd lay out good cash for some tequila and Cointreau and make some decent frozen margaritas. It's the season, and the weather for it.

I think I'll stick to shandys for the time being.

Current Mood: disappointed disappointed

Allow me to recommend another drink associated with Hemmingway, Death In The Afternoon. It is a simple drink. Just a jigger of Absinthe in the bottom of a champagne flute, topped with champagne.

You have mint. You have rum. You have lime.

Mojito baby!
