Podcast: Trump’s Iowa Whining, Ernest Hemingway, and Cocktail Folklore

Ernest Hemingway didn’t actually drink mojitos and Winston Churchill’s mother didn’t invent the Manhattan.


Did Ernest Hemingway write drunk? What was his drink of choice? Did Winston Churchill’s mother invent the Manhattan? Museum of the American Cocktail co-founder and author of To Have and Have Another: A Hemingway Cocktail Companion, Phillip Greene, joined The Federalist Radio to answer these questions and discuss other cocktail folklore.

Greene also explains how American cocktails have experienced a renaissance in the last two decades, just as how the food and drink industry has. “We started to see it with single-malt scotches and small-batch bourbons–it just continued with the revival of bitters. People just wanted to get back to getting away from mass-produced, commercialized, bland, lowest common denominator offerings,” he said.

But first, Ben Domenech addresses Donald Trump’s recent complaints about the Iowa Caucus and claims of Ted Cruz’s voter fraud. Even Trump’s backers in the media are not going to be able to defend these complaints. “They’re not going to be able to stand up there and say with a straight face that there was any kind of voter fraud. It’s just not something that stands up under any kind of scrutiny,” he said.
