Look & Drink Like Hemmingway at Cuba Libre

Cuba Libre has been pumping out daiquiris all month long. For $10 each, guests are welcomed to enjoy the daiquiri of the day, and each is just as exiting as the next. Thursday, July 21, is a kind of pinnacle in the daiquiri homage, as it is the 112th birthday of one of Cuba’s most famous residents and America’s most famous authors, Earnest Hemmingway.

During happy hour, from 5pm – 7pm, Cuba Libre will be offering Hemmingway’s favorite drink, the Papa Doble for $5.

Chef Guillermo Pernot has also prepared a menu of snacks for $4 each, including Guacamole Cubano, avocado with golden pineapple, fresh lime juice and extra virgin olive oil, served with plantain chips; Frituras de Bacalao, salted cod fritters with homemade lemon mayonnaise; and Miami Frita, a mini Cuban burger of ground beef, pork and chorizo with tomato, lettuce, mojo de ajo and mustard on toasted Cuban bread with Kennebec shoestring potatoes.

Plus, there will be a Hemmingway lookalike contest. So if you look like Hemmingway, you know where to be.
