Editorial Reviews

Review

"A fascinating literary-booze study…”

Washington Post

“An interesting read and a must-have for Hemingway lovers and craft bartenders.”

Kirkus

“At a time when cocktail books have become rote, To Have and Have Another by Philip Greene subverts the formula and provides recipe-by-recipe substance to Ernest Hemingway's drinking ways…. [Greene] lets the drinks lead the way but fleshes each one with meticulous detail to round out the pieces of Papa's lusty life.”

San Francisco Chronicle

“Even a casual student of the novelist Ernest Hemingway knows the man liked to drink. But a quick skimming of Philip Greene’s new book, To Have and Have Another: A Hemingway Cocktail Companion, reveals exactly how much the man enjoyed his cups.”

The New York Times

“Might be the next best thing to drinking with Hemingway.”

Imbibe

“Greene, the co-founder of The Museum of the American Cocktail, makes it easy to recreate some of Hemingway’s most memorable literary libations, including the Dripped Absinthe from For Whom the Bell Tolls and the Jack Rose from The Sun Also Rises.

Wine Enthusiast

“[A]n off-beat and worthy addition to the Papa bookshelf, especially for the imbibers among us.”

The Florida Book Review

To Have and Have Another is light and engaging, a fast read that works as both a dictionary of cocktails and a reference text on Hemingway's works and personal life.”

Serious Eats

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 Peychaud’s 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.

Customer Reviews

Accurately researched and well written, it is historically correct and a good read.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is either a fan of Hemmingway's or anyone who is interested in making some great drinks.

Philip Greene really did his homework, tying Hemingway's favorite cocktails to his writing.

To say the author did Hemingway justice is a true understatement. This is no ordinary cocktail book, yet an insider's journey into the world of one of the most fascinating world icons, how he lived, how he drank, and all the stories in between that I've never heard of! I recommend this as a gift for the spirit lover, the Hemingway fanatic, storyteller, or history buff - you really can't go wrong. I just bought 8 for the holiday season! I can't wait to start making some of these classic libations. Cheers!

The airport lounge full of stranded travelers began to smell like the bull pens in Pamplona as the snow slowly buried Minneapolis in its fluffy sarcophagus. "Two more hours' delay, Ingles", said the shoe-shine boy on his fifth pass over my now-darkened natural canvas all-stars. "You had better take a walk to the bar by Gate 67 before your shoes stiffen up." I looked up from the book I had been reading. A good book. A book filled with hope, and fine stories and memories of days on fishing streams with good whisky and stories of women, some with few clothes. i walked through the corridor to the bar, to a dulled, scratched expanse of wood with filmy rings from travelers departed months ago. I put down the book, opened it, pointed to the page, and said "Remember the Maine. Can you make it? Can you make it cold, and sweet, and with the spirit of Papa looking over your shoulder as you add the absinthe?"......

Travel back in time, into the pages of the life and lore of Hemingway with a drink in hand: Absinthe in Paris in the 20s, Champagne with bitters and a sugar cube in Stresa, Italy; a Maestro Collins with London dry gin while fishing for marlin out on the Gulf Stream between Key West and Havana. Philip Greene, master mixologist and Hemingway aficionado combines photos, anecdotes, side-bar items about bars, books, and drinking buddies -- and the recipes of course -- in this great book that is a party unto itself. Literary types will appreciate the insights into Hemingway's stories and novels and how the drinks are woven into the tapestry of the writing; serious drinkers will enjoy the historical detail of ingedients -- the what and how people of a certain class drank almost one-hundred years ago. Cheers! Marsh Muirhead - author of Key West Explained - a guide for the traveler

Totally enjoyed this book. Being a huge Hemingway fan, I loved the way each cocktail was tied in to stories that I knew by heart but didn't always know the recipe. Lots of fun and well and respectfully written.

To Have and Have Another

1 Oz. History
1 Oz. Recipe Guide
1 Oz. Fascinating
1 Dash Lit Crit

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass and shake until well combined. Serve between boards.

Phil Greene's To Have and Have Another is a terrifically readable, fascinating account of Hemingway's drinking life and scenes, combined with well researched recipes for dozens of classic and obscure cocktails.

If you like Hemingway, if you like your History served with a booze chaser, this is a terrific read.

Highly recommended.

I am a Hemingway aficionado and I loved the quotes and photos and found the recipes too enticing not to try. They were most delightful. Great read. Great bar guide. To Have and Have Another is a Christmas gift for all ages. Enjoy. Cheers!
