El Floridita No. 1

There are a variety of drinks that seem to share the name "El Floridita" but they all get their name from the Floridita bar in Havana, Cuba. This version is rumored to be Ernest Hemingway's favorite, who was a frequent visitor of the Floridita. The Floridita was known for its bartenders who specialized in fruit juice and rum cocktails like this one.
