Presented by Philip Greene
Spend an evening with Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald, focusing on their favorite cocktails and stories of their life and adventures, from New York to Paris to Italy and the South of France. Your guide will be Philip Greene, a co-founder of the Museum of the American Cocktail in New Orleans, and author of two popular cocktail books, To Have and Have Another – A Hemingway Cocktail Companion and The Manhattan: The Story of the First Modern Cocktail. He’s also a cocktail columnist with TheDailyBeast.com, and just finished his third book, A Drinkable Feast: A 1920s Paris Cocktail Companion, to be published by Penguin Random House in 2018. Phil will regale you with stories of Scott and Zelda, from the pages of The Great Gatsby, This Side of Paradise, Save Me the Waltz, and others, as well as from their biographies, memoirs, and letters, especially from Scott’s friendship with Ernest Hemingway. Enjoy delicious and authentic Fitzgerald (and Hemingway) cocktails and learn how to make them at home.
