{friday cocktail: hemingway daiquiri}

Ever since I came across a photo of the interior of Club Raye, I have had it on my list of places we absolutely had to visit before leaving Paris.  Decked out in black and white stripes with pops of emerald green (raye actually translates to "stripe" in French), the restaurant/bar is the perfect place to relax with a cocktail and soak in some of the wonderful live jazz music they have every night.  Besides enjoying the music and decor, I got to try a Hemingway Daiquiri for the first time which is a cocktail that is rich in history as much as flavor (watch a video on making it here).  Similar to other cocktails named for or created by Hemingway this one is very strong and slightly sweet.



  1. That bar looks awesome! The drink sounds really good except I hate grapefruit you think it would be good if you used orange juice instead?

    1. Hi Emmie,

      The grapefruit juice is used for sweetness in this drink and it's not super present so you might not mind it in this drink. Orange juice could be a good substitute or you might try meyer lemon juice. If you do try either please let me know how it turns out!!
