The Hemingway Special

The Hemingway Special

December 17, 2020

Deep down I think we always knew that grapefruit juice and rum are an amazing pairing. But that joy was revitalized when we made The Hemingway special. While it’s not nearly as boozy as some of the recipes we found, as in 3 ½ oz of rum, we felt that our take on it still does this fantastic shrubbie justice. It’s a great blend of citrus and cherry with a nice little ginger backing.
