Jade Estabillo upscales a Hemingway Daiquiri right here


This is Jade Estabillo’s take on a Hemingway Daiquiri. Traditionally it’s made with light rum, but this version has white tequila thanks to the grassy notes. This is a great cocktail to drink before dinner, as it opens up and refreshes your palate.


  • 1/2oz Maraschino Liqueur
  • 2oz Blanca Tequila
  • 1/2oz grapefruit juice
  • 1/2oz lime juice
  • dash of agave


Start with your liqueur, add tequila, grapefruit juice, lime juice, a dash of agave and ice. Shake for about 30 seconds and single strain into a coup or a martini glass.

Finally, create a grapefruit twist for the garnish. Zest it over the glass and give that lip a wipe with the skin.

Bon appetit!
