5 Cocktails Your Favorite Author Would Drink

August 15, 2014 |

The Singapore Sling

The staple drink from both Hunter S. Thompson’s The Rum Diary and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. It’s a sweet drink that inhabits Thompson’s not so sweet world of corrupt cops, business owners and even more shady main characters. This drink consists of the following:

  • 3 oz Gin
  • 1.5 oz Heering Cherry Liqueur (cherry brandy)
  • 0.75 oz Cointreau
  • 0.75 oz DOM Bénédictine
  • 1 oz (2 parts) Grenadine
  • 12 oz (16 parts) Pineapple juice
  • 1.5 oz Fresh lime juice
  • 1 dash Angostura bittersSingapore Sling

How you make it:

Pour all ingredients into cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes.

Shake well.

Strain into highball glass.

Garnish with pineapple and cocktail cherry.

Hemingway Daiquiri

 Hemingway Daiquiri

Invented in 1886 by an American engineer stationed in Cuba during the Spanish-American war, the Daiquiri soon became the patron drink of sailors. It even made it’s way to The White House as JFK’s drink of choice. This variation was made specially for Ernest Hemingway by a bartender who knew him a little too well. Legend has it that Hemingway could go through quite a few of these in one sitting so it was made without sugar.

  • 4.5 oz (9 parts) White Rum
  • 1 oz (3 parts) Lime Juice
  • 0.5 oz (2 parts) Grapefruit Juice
  • 1.5 oz (3 parts) Maraschino Liquer

How you make it:

Pour all ingredients into shaker with ice cubes. Shake well. Strain in chilled cocktail glass.

The Godfather

 The Godfather

Alright. You got me. This titular drink probably has more to do with the film adaptation rather than the dead-tree version of Mario Puzo’s crime drama. But containing only two top shelf ingredients, it’s not hard to see why a mob boss might choose it.

  • 35 ml (1 part) scotch whisky
  • 35 ml (1 part) amaretto

How you make it:

Pour all ingredients directly into old fashioned glass filled with ice cubes. Stir gently.

Mint Julep

 The Mint Julep

Still a staple of America’s South and it’s upper-class culture, this drink has been with America since it’s founding. Before it made it’s way to the Kentucky Derby, Virginians used the drink to wake up with and saw the powers of the mint leaf as something like today’s Red Bull.

  • 6 oz Bourbon whiskey
  • 4 mint leaves
  • 1 teaspoon powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons water

How you make it:

In a highball glass gently muddle the mint, sugar and water. Fill the glass with cracked ice, add Bourbon and stir well until the glass is well frosted. Garnish with a mint sprig.

400px-French_75

French 75

Only a certain kind of character would have these ingredients laying around. The French 75 is named after an artillery piece by an American who spent a little too much time around France during the First World War. Be warned, it can be as dangerous as it’s namesake if paired with a night on the town.

  • 3 oz gin
  • 2 dashes simple syrup
  • 1.5 oz lemon juice
  • 6 oz Champagne

How you make it:

Combine gin, syrup, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into an iced champagne glass. Top up with Champagne. Stir gently.
