Hemingway and Bailey's Bartending Guide to Great American Writers by Edward Hemingway
Book DescriptionEveryone has a favourite drink. Everyone has a favourite author. "Hemingway & Bailey's Bartending Guide to Great American Writers" mixes the two together in a spirited and altogether original guide to cocktails and the literary life. From Hemingway's Mojito to O'Neill's Gibson, from Kerouac's Margarita to Bukowski's Boilermaker, here is the perfect blend of classic cocktail recipes, literary history, and entertaining stories of the famous and the infamous among American literati. When Robert Benchley was asked if he knew that drinking was a slow death, Benchley took a sip of his cocktail and replied, "So who's in a hurry!" Hunter S. Thompson took Muhammad Ali's health tip to eat grapefruit every day; he just added vodka to the mix. Invited to a "come as you are" party, Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda, arrived in their pyjamas ready for their cocktail of choice: a Gin Rickey. Each beautifully illustrated entry includes a literary excerpt from the writer's work alongside a drink recipe, a biographical sketch, and a telling anecdote about life off the wagon. In short, "Hemingway & Bailey's" delivers straight-up fun. Illustrator, Edward Hemingway is the grandson of Ernest Hemingway.
