The pleasure of drinking has been praised by many authors since ancient times: merits, miraculous effects and even advice on how to prepare or consume certain drinks. Bar Hemingway by Giovanni Casalegno, like a sort of literary bar, offers a rich menu of quotes by authors: aphorisms, jokes, maxims and sentences, drops of wisdom, words distilled to celebrate the Dionysian intoxication and chase away bad thoughts. In appendix, 11 famous author cocktails to prepare and sip with the right moderation. Prosit!

Giovanni Casalegno, originally from Moncucco Torinese (Asti), is a teacher of Literature. Passionate about Italian literature and cuisine, he has published several essays about enogastronomic literature, novels, short stories and he is co-author of relevant lexicographic publications.
