Ernest Hemingway contributed this drink to a 1935 collection of celebrity recipes, instructing “pour one jigger of absinthe into a champagne glass. Add iced champagne until it attains the proper opalescent milkiness. Drink three to five of these slowly.”

  • Champagne


Listen to Papa Hemingway and pace yourself.
