This is the smart drunk’s book of ways to get drunk without having to not feel smart anymore. Everyone knows the literary world has always been peopled with high boozers, so this book isn’t the first place that wordsmithing and the happy sauce have been brought together in holy matrimony. But it sure is clever as an O’Henry story. Unique, novel-themed cocktail recipes coupled with commentary on the literary works that inspired them will keep any book loving drinker entertained until the words start to blend together. Then it’s all about the booze.
