One man invented it. Another one named it. And over the years their clashing personalities shaped the Hemingway Daiquiri. 

When Ernest Hemingway arrived in Cuba he was nearing the end of his days as a young man. When one day he stumbled into La Florida in Havana he met a man who would become his constant companion over the next few years. When Constantino Ribalaigua was tending bar one day and watched a young boisterous author take his seat he met the man that would shape his legacy forever. Special guests this week are “Potions of the Caribbean” author and Latitude 29 owner Jeff “Beachbum” Berry and Philip Greene, author of “To Have and Have Another.”
