Papa Hemingway was a notorious lover, fighter, boozer, and hunter. Oh yeah, he also wrote books sometimes. Perhaps the manliest man to ever walk this planet, Hemingway preferred to be drunk—"not drunk in any positive sense but just enough to be careless," he explains in The Sun Also Rises. He drank, he wrote, he sobered up and edited, then drank again.
Unabashedly proud of his imbibing habits, Hem wrote to his heart's content about his love of alcohol. Below are some of Big Papa's finest words on wine, whiskey, daiquiris, and a very very special recipe for a Bloody Mary. Drink up!
