Death In The Afternoon

Death in the Afternoon is a absinthe based Champagne Cocktail create by Ernest Hemingway. In his typically modest fashion, Papa named the drink after his novel of the same name.

The recipe was Hemingway’s submission to the 1935 book So Red the Nose, or, Breath in the Afternoon. According to the anthology, Hemingway devised the specs along with three officers of the HMS Danae during a rescue at sea.

Hemingway advised readers to “Drink three to five of these slowly,” but his editor cautioned that “After six of these cocktails, The Sun Also Rises.”
