Bar La Florida Cocktails 1935 Reprint
by Ross Bolton
La Florida Bar, also known as the "Floridita", made the Daiquiri famous, with a little help from Papa.
Ernest "Papa" Hemingway, would meet friends like Spencer Tracy or Gary Cooper, and order a round of his drink the "Papa Doble".
This book was also the start of many misprints. The Daiquiri recipe calls for a Lemon Verde, translated literally means a "green lemon" which back then was a badly translated lime.
Featuring many cocktails with measurements in both Spanish and English, it also covers more obscure drinks like absinthe drop, mojito, zazerac, Mary Pickford, Peggy Niles, and pisco punch.
