Although he probably never drank Dos Equis, Ernest Hemingway was perhaps the prototype for the brand’s “Most Interesting Man in the World” ad campaign. Indeed, in addition to being one of the 20th century’s greatest writers, he lived a big, bold, adventurous life.

It took him from summers in Northern Michigan to Italy in World War I, Paris during the Lost Generation days of the 1920s, Key West, Cuba, Africa, big-game hunting and fishing, the Spanish Civil War, World War II, and to other exploits all over the world. You could say that Hemingway traveled globally and drank locally. 

Award-winning writer and attorney Philip Greene examines the life, prose, travels, and adventures of Hemingway through the lens of his favorite drinks, watering holes, and drinking buddies. Enjoy light snacks and four cocktail samples and raise a toast to Papa.

Greene is the author of To Have and Have Another: A Hemingway Cocktail Companion, a Daily Beast cocktail columnist, and a co-founder of the Museum of the American Cocktail in New Orleans.

Copies of To Have and Have Another (TarcherPerigee) are available for purchase and signing.
