Review:

Ernest Hemingway was both a diabetic who avoided sugar and a hardened drinker. With this in mind I've subtly softened and mellowed his creation. It's still on the dry side and plenty strong enough, but hopefully better balanced.

History:

Named after the small Bahamian island of Great Isaac Cay, the Green Isaac's Special appears in Ernest Hemingway's autobiographical novel Islands in the Stream where the great author wrote, "Thomas Hudson tasted, took a swallow and felt the cold that had the sharpness of the lime, the aromatic varnishy taste of the Angostura and the gin stiffening the lightness of the ice-cold coconut water.

Nutrition:

There are approximately 116 calories in one serving of Green Isaac's Special.
