A Farewell to Hemingway


2. March 2014 by swizzzlestick

According to Philip Greene To Have and Have Another Ernest Hemingway liked kirschwasser, a dry sherry brandy popular in Germany and the Alps. Hemingway´s friend Charles Baker published the Hemingway drink A Farewell to Hemingway, some sort of Kirsch Collins, in Volume 2 of the Gentleman´s Companion. Baker noted that they also liked a variation with raspberry syrup instead of cherry syrup. And this is the one I have done today and I enjoyed it a lot.


2 and 1/4 oz. Kirsch, 1/4 oz. Raspberry Syrup, Juice of 1 large Lime, Soda, garnish: Spiral Lime Peel


Shake ingredients, except the soda, with ice, pour contents into a collins glass (note that I did not transfer the ice), drop in a spiral lime peel, and fill the glass nearly full with chilled soda.
