The Hal Ligon originated in Key West sometime in the 1930’s when famous local/author Ernest Hemingway and fishing buddy, Hal Ligon, began ordering the drink at nearby bars.

The drink migrated north into mainland Florida but its name eventually evolved into today’s Screwdriver. You can still order the drink by its original name in many South Florida bars. We encourage you to revive its name in your local bar or wherever fine cocktails are enjoyed.

The theme for this Mixology Monday (hosted by Cocktail Virgin Slut) is tea. Tea cocktails are one of my favorites, so I jumped at the chance to update a classic cocktail with tea.
