Thursday, January 1st

12:00am - 12:00amSeminars

Paris in the 1920s became a mecca for artists, writers, poets, entertainers, bohemians, expatriate Americans, and a motley assortment of other characters. Luminaries such as Joyce, Hemingway, Picasso, Fitzgerald, Dos Passos, Stein, Dali, and many others populated the cafes, night clubs, salons and saloons, the latter of which were often run by some of the most legendary bartenders of the day. Learn about what they were drinking in Paris of the Lost Generation. The seminar is moderated by Philip Greene, author of To Have and Have Another – A Hemingway Cocktail Companion, and a founder of the Museum of the American Cocktail. … Joining Philip is Alexandre Gabriel, President/owner of Cognac Ferrand, a tireless spirits researcher and producer of artisanal spirit jewels. From the Hot Rum Punch that Hemingway favored on cold days in outdoor cafes, to the classic Sidecar, to other gems. Taste for yourself what the denizens of the Left Bank were imbibing back in Paris of the 1920s. Sponsored by Hemingway Rum Co./Papa’s Pilar Dark and Blonde Rums, Pierre Ferrand 1840 Original Formula Cognac and Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao.
