Eat and Drink Like Hemingway

Even if you can’t get fresh lion meat, you can still eat like Hemingway with these recipes and cocktails.

When items from writer Ernest Hemingway’s Cuban home Finca Vigía (‘Lookout Farm’) were donated to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston, one-note told his staff how to create his favorite hamburgers: “ground beef, onions, garlic, India relish, and capers, cooked so the edges were crispy but the center red and juicy.”

Legend has it that Hemingway was at Havana’s El Floridita bar when he spotted the bartender making Daiquiris. Hemingway tried one. But thought it better with no sugar and double the rum. The bartender made one, and then named the drink after him.
