Each weekend, countless writers from across the nation gather at local book and writer’s clubs, exchanging ideas and reviewing each other’s stories. As each works to perfect their craft and learn the literary secrets of their favorite authors, few consider how to become like their favorite author – really like their favorite author.
If you enjoy reading as much as we do, chances are that you have a favorite author who you admire. And chances are that said author has a favorite drink or two. Let’s face it: historic authors and their favorite drinks are inseparable. Fortunately, we have the opportunity to make gourmet drinks at home, and the abundance of premium syrup has seriously enhanced the drinking experience.
Below are some of history’s most notable authors and their favorite drinks. If you’re out of ideas and want to make gourmet drinks, we suggest trying them out. After all, they’re our favorite authors for a reason!
Hemingway and the Mojito
Just as his writing style embraces a gripping yet lean narrative prose that drives the meaning in his story, Hemingway is known primarily for his affection for the Mojito. Although Hemingway loved many drinks (any drinks?), the Mojito was a favorite.
If you’re looking to make gourmet drinks a la Ernest Hemingway, it’s important to use premium syrup to provide the quality taste you want. Amoretti Premium Mojito Syrup is a superb way to make gourmet drinks and enjoy the taste of Cuba-era Hemingway.
William Faulkner and the Kentucky Derby
In 1955, Sports Illustrated sent William Faulkner to cover the Kentucky Derby, which could explain Faulkner’s love of the Mint Julep. Known as the most famous drink of the Kentucky Derby, the Mint Julep consists of whiskey, sugar, ice, and crushed mint sprigs. If you want to make gourmet drinks, the Mint Julep is a relatively easy recipe, yet a difficult one to pull off just right. Practice, practice, practice, we say!
The Debate Over Raymond Chandler
We’re actually not quite sure what Raymond Chandler preferred. While we do know that he liked whiskey and lime juice, it’s difficult to discern his exact favorite drink. Fortunately, with a premium syrup from Amoretti, you can enjoy the fresh lime taste without having to worry about preparing the juice. Amoretti Premium Lime Syrup will allow you to make gourmet drinks that Raymond Chandler would have likely enjoyed.
Regardless of the recipe used, be sure to use Amoretti premium syrup for all your needs!
