Novel Drinks

7 May

I was just reading about a Lemon-Thyme Gimlet, on Slashfood, and the author mentioned that he started drinking gimlets after reading about them in Raymond Chandler novels. That’s why I did, too. Philip Marlowe made them sound so damn cool. I prefer mine like Marlowe’s–Rose’s lime juice, not fresh. It made me wonder what other food and drinks I’ve tried just because I’ve read about them in a novel.

(By the way, The Big Lebowski is based, in part, on Chandler’s novel The Big Sleep. The Dude’s Caucasians are his version of Marlowe’s gimlets.)
