What is known is Ernest Hemingway was a regular at Havana, Cuba’s famed El Floridita bar.  (Allegedly, he discovered the joint while looking for a bathroom.) From there, the facts defer to legend.

Legend has it that Hemingway had a low tolerance for sugar and the bar created this simple-free Daiquiri variation especially for Papa. (Maraschino is used to achieve a similar effect to the sugar.) The story continues that the author preferred the drink served in doubles known as Papa Dobles which he would consume en masse. El Floridita’s historians claim that Hemingway set a record drinking 16 of these Papa Dobles in one sitting.
