 About the Book 

This publication contains over 6000 drink concoctions collected in over five hundred cities, towns, little hamlets and many villages in over fifty countries and all of the fifty states. That is almost three times the number of recipes in any otherMoreThis publication contains over 6000 drink concoctions collected in over five hundred cities, towns, little hamlets and many villages in over fifty countries and all of the fifty states. That is almost three times the number of recipes in any other drink book that has been published up to this time. The drink recipes and other bits of information and humor were collected over a period of fifty-two years of traveling, dining, drinking and working in the Hotel and Restaurant industry. Most of the recipes were told to me by bartenders, wine stewards, wine producers, distillery managers, liquor salesmen, brew masters and drinking folk that I met in my travels, including a white lightning entrepreneur. Throughout this book there are hundreds of jokes, quotes, toasts, quips, statements, recommended name brand alcoholic delights, ways to make your own, serious and amusing anecdotes and philosophies by famous and infamous people that I have collected in my travels or enjoyed over a cocktail in some distant oasis. I have tried to give proper credit, where credit is due- but for those that I can find no origin, I simply call them Trixieisms You be the judge.
