Writers and their drinks

On a recent edition of NPR's Books, Steve Inskeep interviewed
Mark Bailey and illustrator Edward Hemingway -- grandson of the writer -- about their new book, Hemingway & Bailey's Bartending Guide, Great American Writers.

from NPR:
"Famous writers and drinks are inseparable, despite the price some paid for the vice. Ernest Hemingway loved the Mojito, William Faulkner had his mint juleps, and F. Scott Fitzgerald was convinced gin was the way to go (he thought its smell would be undetectable on his breath)."
