The Hemingway

by Jen on June 16, 2011

Will and I are happily on vacation in Berlin with our friends Spencer and Ann Marie.

This evening we explored a cocktail bar with a very extensive cocktail menu. We were surprised that some of the drinks included Angustura bitters — one of our favorite ingredients that we have yet to find at any German supermarkets or stores.

I ordered the Hemingway, a drink the menu claimed to be composed of gin, grenadine and lemon juice. It was so very red, I was surprised it was named after such a manly author. However, Will claims that Hemingway’s favorite drink was the daiquiri in which case he would have really liked the sweetness of this drink.

Germans don’t seem to appreciate gin the way we do, but do love their beer. We were happy to find traditional cocktails at this trendy bar, and have appreciated the different tastes of German beers.


Guten tag!
