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.
