Hemingway Inspired

The running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain has begun and already there has been several injuries including a goring.  They were discussing this on the radio early this afternoon and that got me to thinking about Ernest Hemingway.

Above is a version of one of his favorite drinks, a Floridita.  It's white rum, lime juice, grapefruit juice and sugar.  The final ingredient is supposed to be half an ounce of a maraschino liqueur, but since that wasn't on hand the drink got one drop of juice from a fresh black cherry.  Shake over ice and strain  into a glass.  To keep it Caribbean add a small flamingo to the side.
