Hemingway Cocktail Seminar

Join Phil Greene of the Museum of the American Cocktail in celebrating Ernest Hemingway's 110th birthday by enjoying some of the drinks he and his characters imbibed, during his seminar To Have and Have Another - The Hemingway Bartender's Companion. The session will be held at the Smithsonian's Museum of the American Indian on July 15, from 6:45 to 8:45 pm. For members of Smithsonian Associates, the cost is $45, for general admission it's $65.

Phil will be mixing up the Jack Rose (from The Sun Also Rises), the Green Isaac's Special (Islands in the Stream), the Montgomery Martini (Across the River and Into the Trees), the Papa Doble Daiquiri (Islands in the Stream, and other sources), and the Death in the Afternoon (a classic mixture of champagne and absinthe). Plus, you'll learn how to make these and other Hemingway drinks at home. You'll also enjoy excerpts from Papa's prose, letters, and biography, hear anecdotes about his life and times, and more.
