"My aim was to prepare something as good and as simple as the Original Bacardí Daiquiri; to make a cocktail from simple ingredients that you can get at your local store. It has to be fresh, balanced, aromatic, unique and very easy to prepare. During my preparation I started to read more about the Bacardi history and I noticed the connection between Bacardi and Ernest Hemingway. His favorite cocktail was the Original Bacardí Daiquiri, so I used this as my starting point."

We say: Basically a bitter orange and clove daiquiri - We found this recipe really sung when we added a splash of water for some extra dilution and half a bar spoon of sugar - perhaps our No Peel Orange Marmalade from Wilkin & Sons was a tad on the sour side - or even our limes. Anyway, once balance adjusted this particular "Breakfast" was very tasty.
