Written by the cocktail connoisseur Philip Greene, one of the founders of the Museum of the American Cocktail in New Orleans, the book delves into the specifics of cocktails that Hemingway and his characters enjoyed. Each entry contains a description of the origins of the cocktail and its relation to Hemingway, as well as suggested reading for passages in the author's novels that relate to specific drinks. The book was inscribed by the author, Philip Greene, as well as Ernest Hemingway's son, Patrick, and his grandson, John. Patrick Hemingway, a writer himself, was responsible for the publication of his father's collection of writings relating to his second trip to Africa, which Patrick worked into book form and published as what he called a fictional memoir, titled True at First Light (1999). Notably, the manuscript was later reworked and published as Under Kilimanjaro (2005) by two literary scholars who felt that the earlier publication did not do justice to the original manuscript. John Hemingway, the son of Ernest's son Gregory (later Gloria) Hemingway, is a writer and the author of Strange Tribe (2007), a family memoir that focused on the portrayal of masculinity in Ernest Hemingway's novels and its connections to the masculine ideals in his own family.
