Hemingway. Shall we call him the Patron Saint of Cocktails?
"An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his fools." — For Whom the Bell Tolls, 1940
According to CNN Travel, one of the world's 50 best bars is in (drumroll, please) Prague. Can't say I am shocked as I have had my fair share of great memories at several of them.
So, which bar is it? One that I have not been to, but will have to visit next time I am in town, and that bar is Hemingway Bar. I must say, I am quite impressed with their cocktail list and their abundance of gins and rums (my favorite spirits!). This place has that speak easy, prohibition-era vibe. I like it.
"I wanted to try this new drink. That's all we do, isn't it—look at things and try new drinks?" —"Hills Like White Elephants," Men Without Women, 1927
