Σχόλια:

Remembering that Hemingway was a diabetic so had a very sour tooth, we believe this drink needs more than 'one teaspoon' of sugar. Thus we've added half a shot of sugar syrup to the original recipe. It also benefits from dilution, so be sure to shake well and churn in the glass.

Οι ρίζες του:

According to Charles H. Baker's 1946 The Gentleman's Companion, this libation was a favourite of Ernest Hemingway.

"We got Hemingway's other picker-upper, and liked it. Take a tall thin water tumbler and fill it with finely cracked ice. Lace this broken debris with four good purple splashes of Angostura, add the juice and crushed peel of one green lime, and fill the glass almost full with Holland gin... No sugar, no fancying. It's strong, it's bitter - but so is English ale strong and bitter, in many cases. We don't add sugar to ale, and we don't need sugar in a Death In The Gulf Stream - or at least not more than one teaspoon. Its tartness and its bitterness are its chief charm. It is reviving and refreshing; cools the blood and inspires renewed interest in food, companions and life."
