To Have and Have Another: A Hemingway Cocktail Companion Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Few writers have achieved such legend as Ernest Hemingway, and fewer still have won such a reputation for drinking as constantly and heavily—quite an accomplishment in a profession chock-full of heavy imbibers. For Hemingway, the artists craft was twofold: to write well and to drink well, too.

In To Have and Have Another: A Hemingway Cocktail Companion, Philip Greene, cocktail historian, spirits consultant, and cofounder of the Museum of the American Cocktail, offers us a view of Papa through the lens Papa himself preferred—the bottom of a glass.

A bartenders manual for Hemingway enthusiasts, this revised and expanded volume offers a unique take on Hemingways oeuvre that privileges the tastes, smells, and colors of the cocktails he enjoyed and the drinks he placed so prominently in his stories they were nearly characters themselves. To Have and Have Another delivers fascinating and lively background on the various drinks, their ingredients, their histories, and the characters—real and fictional—associated with them. 

 

 

Synopsis:

Shakespeare, Not Stirred is a cocktail book that brings a Shakespeare-inspired twist to lifeand#8217;s everyday highs and lows. The thirty-four original drinks and twenty-eight hors dand#8217;oeuvres recipes each highlight a particular Shakespearean character or theme through which the authors riff on a specific everyday problemand#151;some comic, some tragic, but all of them Shakespearean to the core.

  • Feeling paranoid about your power-hungry colleagues? Whip up Julius Caesarand#8217;s and#147;Et Tu, Brutand#8221; Champagne Cocktail and youand#8217;ll forget about getting stabbed in the back.
  • Stressed out by your unambitious husband? Our Lady Macbethand#8217;s G-Spot guarantees some happy and#147;me time.and#8221;
Each drink is matched with hors dand#8217;oeuvres, dubbed and#147;Savory Matters,and#8221; that follow the same formula, such as Falstaffand#8217;s Paunch Sliders and Macbethand#8217;s Crushed Nuts.

Synopsis:

In To Have and Have Another, Ernest Hemingway enthusiast and cocktail connoisseur Philip Greene delves deeper into the author’s drinking habits than ever before, offering dozens of authentic recipes for drinks directly connected with the novels, history and folklore, and colorful anecdotes about the man himself. With this cocktail companion, you will be able to fully enjoy Hemingway’s works beyond the limits of the imagination—pick up this book and taste how “cool and clean” and “civilized” Frederic Henry’s martini was in A Farewell to Arms, or sip a Bloody Mary, a drink rumored to be named by Hemingway himself!

About the Author

Philip Greene is one of the founders of the Museum of the American Cocktail in New Orleans. He is a sought-after speaker on topics within cocktail history, as well as a mixology consultant for restaurants and institutions across the world.

A descendant of the Peychaud family of New Orleans, Greene counts among his ancestors the illustrious Antoine Amedee Peychaud, the nineteenth-century New Orleans pharmacist who created Peychauds Bitters (essential to a true Sazerac) and is credited with coining the term “cocktail.”

By day, Philip serves as Trademark and Internet Counsel for the U.S. Marine Corps, stationed at the Pentagon. He lives in Washington, DC, with his wife and three daughters.
