Fans of Papa Hemingway’s work know all about how to drink from a wine skin at the festival of San Fermín in Pamplona, Spain. When bar crawling in Havana, they know to get their daiquiris at El Floridita and their mojitos at La Bodeguita. They are also well aware that Hemingway was an advocate of a mysterious and lesser known spirit known as absinthe.
