If you know anything about classic cocktails you probably know that Ernest Hemingway sure liked to drink ’em. Last month, Phil Greene hosted a seminar in the great author’s honor titled ” To Have and Have Another: The Hemingway Bartender’s Companion.” You can read up on the event, including classic cocktail recipes and cocktail-related Hemingway passages, over at the Museum of the American Cocktail’s blog. While you’re there, take a look around-it’s a wonderful organization!
The event even featured the classic Hemingway’s Death In the Afternoon cocktail, with Pernod Absinthe. An excellent cocktail for New Year’s, if I do say so myself. Check out the recipe below:
Hemingway’s Death in the Afternoon:
1 1/2 oz. Pernod Absinthe
4 oz. Brut Champagne
Pour Absinthe into a flute and top with Champagne. It’s as simple as that!
