And they drink daiquiris, just like (you guessed it) Hemingway did. That’s right, the Daiquiri was invented by Jennings Stockton Cox, a mining engineer in Santiago, Cuba. In fact, the Daiqiuri was named after the copper-ore mines. For all we know, Hemingway’s book Across the River and Into the Trees (written in Cuba) could have been inspired under the influence of the delicious Daiqiuri.
