To say the author did Hemingway justice is a true understatement. This is no ordinary cocktail book, yet an insider's journey into the world of one of the most fascinating world icons, how he lived, how he drank, and all the stories in between that I've never heard of! I recommend this as a gift for the spirit lover, the Hemingway fanatic, storyteller, or history buff - you really can't go wrong. I just bought 8 for the holiday season! I can't wait to start making some of these classic libations. Cheers!
The airport lounge full of stranded travelers began to smell like the bull pens in Pamplona as the snow slowly buried Minneapolis in its fluffy sarcophagus. "Two more hours' delay, Ingles", said the shoe-shine boy on his fifth pass over my now-darkened natural canvas all-stars. "You had better take a walk to the bar by Gate 67 before your shoes stiffen up." I looked up from the book I had been reading. A good book. A book filled with hope, and fine stories and memories of days on fishing streams with good whisky and stories of women, some with few clothes. i walked through the corridor to the bar, to a dulled, scratched expanse of wood with filmy rings from travelers departed months ago. I put down the book, opened it, pointed to the page, and said "Remember the Maine. Can you make it? Can you make it cold, and sweet, and with the spirit of Papa looking over your shoulder as you add the absinthe?"......
Travel back in time, into the pages of the life and lore of Hemingway with a drink in hand: Absinthe in Paris in the 20s, Champagne with bitters and a sugar cube in Stresa, Italy; a Maestro Collins with London dry gin while fishing for marlin out on the Gulf Stream between Key West and Havana. Philip Greene, master mixologist and Hemingway aficionado combines photos, anecdotes, side-bar items about bars, books, and drinking buddies -- and the recipes of course -- in this great book that is a party unto itself. Literary types will appreciate the insights into Hemingway's stories and novels and how the drinks are woven into the tapestry of the writing; serious drinkers will enjoy the historical detail of ingedients -- the what and how people of a certain class drank almost one-hundred years ago. Cheers! Marsh Muirhead - author of Key West Explained - a guide for the traveler
Totally enjoyed this book. Being a huge Hemingway fan, I loved the way each cocktail was tied in to stories that I knew by heart but didn't always know the recipe. Lots of fun and well and respectfully written.
If you are a fan of Hemingway or the cocktail this is a must have book. This book opens the world and times of Hemingway. Accurately researched and well written, it is historically correct and a good read. If you thought you knew Hemingway before, you will be surprised how much you learn from this book.
This quick read covers the drinks (and how to make them) connected with Ernest Hemingway. The authors obvious knowledge (and use) of cocktails provides additional insight. I found quite a few concoctions that I'm looking forward to trying soon.

If you need encouragement to drink, this may be the volume to do it with. I don't need encouragement but found this volume a welcome respite with a good drink. The relationship between the drinks as they relate to Hemingway is great and will give you a story to tell while lined up at the bar. Need a good opening line...you can comment on the origins of the drink they have in hand.
