Green Isaac's SpecialGreene describes the recipe as a modified Tom Collins with bitters that history suggests that Hemingway came up with during his time in Key West in the 1930s. It first appears in Islands in the Stream and is named after the islands in question, Great Isaac and Little Isaac that are north of Bimini. The protagonist is described as enjoying, "the tall cold drink made of gin, lime juice, green coconut water, and chipped ice with just enough Angostura Bitters to give it a rusty, rose color." Tasting notes of "the sharpness of the lime, the aromatic varnishy taste of Angostura and the gin stiffening the lightness of the ice-cold coconut water" were also provided. The drink also appears with different names in two other books in this novel.
