Ernest Hemingway created this drink at his favorite Key West bar, Sloppy Joes, which you can still visit today. He wanted something not to sweet but full of flavor.

 

1 1/4 Cups of grapefruit juice

1 1/2 oz. of rum, such as Bacardi Silver, about 3 Tablespoons

Splash of sour mix

Splash of grenadine syrup

Squeeze of fresh lime

 

Fill 12-14 oz. glas with ice, Mix all ingredients and pour over ice in glass. Garnish with a lime wedge. Serves 1

 

Regards,

Gypsy

That sounds good! :atoast: I haven't heard of grenadine syrup before though, I'll have to look that one up.

 

Aloe, you can find it in virtually any liquor store where they have the mixers - sometimes even in grocery stores that carry mixers. It's made with pomegranate juice. (It's also what gives the reddish tinge to a Tequila Sunrise.)

Cool, I'll check it out. I love pomegranates, so it sounds like my kind of thing. :)
