Last week we posted a recipe for the classic Hemingway Daiquiri to celebrate National Daiquiri Day. This week a group of bartenders in Cuba mixed 270 liters of the late author’s favorite rum cocktail in a 6 1/2-foot glass, attempting to set the world record for largest daiquiri. It looks like our Thirsty Thursday column inspired history!
Whether or not they read our post, what they were actually up to was commemorating the 195th anniversary of the bar El Floridita in Havana, Cuba, where the Nobel Prize-winning author of The Old Man and the Sea enjoyed hitting back a few doubles after a long day of writing.
Here are some recipes for our most refreshing summer cocktails. Feel free to 2,000-tuple if you are looking to set some records of your own.
