Hemingway Cocktail Seminar and Book hosted by author Phil Greene



If you’re a fan of Hemingway and a well-made drink, we recommend that you instead spend a night with us for an event titled, “To Have and Have Another – A Hemingway Cocktail Companion.”

Based on the newly-released book of the same name, this is a 90-minute seminar on the drinks featured in the life and works of Ernest Hemingway, hosted by the book’s author, Philip Greene. Mr. Greene’s book is a cocktail lover's guide to the life and works of Hemingway, and embraces how compellingly he wrote about drink, the drinks he enjoyed, biographical info, anecdotes, as well as general background about the drinks, bars and cafes, and related folklore.

It contains 55 easy-to-follow recipes, excerpts from Hemingway’s prose, letters and biographies, and is both fun and informative. Mr. Greene is one of the founders of the Museum of the American Cocktail, and has been a Hemingway buff for over 30 years. As such, he is uniquely qualified to bring his book and this special evening to you.

Your ticket will also include a flight of these four cocktails:
1) The Jack Rose (Applejack, Grenadine, Lime Juice)
2) The Hemingway Daiquri (White Rum, Lime Juice, Grapefruit Juice, Marascino Liquer)
3) Montgomery Martini (Dry Gin, Dry Vermouth)
4) Americano (Campari, Sweet Vermouth, and Club Soda)
