2020 Buns & Roses Tea Drink Recipe

It’s almost time for the 2020 Buns & Roses Tea for literacy event later this month!

If you plan to attend Culture, Cocktails, and Culinary Creations with Tracey Livesay, Vanessa Riley, and me, here’s my drink recipe in case you’d like to make it along with me while we hang out, cook, and chat. You can also check out Tracey and Vanessa’s recipes via the links at the bottom of this post.

Even if you’re not planning to attend the Buns & Roses Tea literacy event, I hope you’ll give the Hemingway Daiquiri a try. I chose this drink as a nod to ISLAND AFFAIR, when Luis and Sara spent an afternoon on the Conch Tour Train with her family and made a stop at Hemingway’s House.

Bringing readers home with me to visit Key West through ISLAND AFFAIR has been an absolute joy! Sincere thanks to everyone who’s spent time on my island home with Luis, Sara, and the Vance and Navarro families. I hope you enjoyed visiting and come back for more with ANCHORED HEARTS, Anamaría’s second chance romance with her high school sweetheart, Alejandro, releasing April 27, 2021!

This Hemingway Daiquiri recipe comes from the Papa’s Pilar® website. If you ever head to Key West, I recommend stopping by the distillery to enjoy their rum tasting. YUMMY!
