  • Daiquiri with its fair share of funk and grapefruity bitterness. — ★★★
  • Nicely complex and balanced with almost no sweetness — ★★★
  • Light, delicious, summery, mildly bitter, and still accessible. Surprisingly complex for a light cocktail. — ★★★★★

Looks great. Might try this one out on a guest. I'll have to change the name lest they also get the image of Papa Hemingway riding a pole in their heads.

Having tasted the Hemingway Stripper Pole, I have to admit it's worthy of a 4.0 rating. I'd like Zach to explain, however, how he came to know that this cocktail tastes "like a buttered stripper pole." The story, Zach! Please!

All I can say about that incident is this: If you've ever been in the wine business in north Texas , chances are you've been to a strip club. And if your visit comes in the middle of summer, you know what Batavia Arrack smells like.  Zachary
