Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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.”
