And I'm plowing my way through this guy, too -- who knew such an old book would be so much fun?

And don't you love reminding people that old-timey cocktails were maybe 3 ounces, tops?

Let's get further off the track...

Trader Vic comments on this in his books adn you will likely have this same experience. People come over and are blown away by your drinks. Then you are at their house or a party and someone says "You make the best drinks. You make us something!" And of course you can't because you have on hand: Coke, Diet Coke, Coconut Rum, beer, and ice. And they don't understand why you can't make anything. They don't even have tonic water and lime juice! That is the modern bar set up. Oh, and maybe some tequila of a very inferior grade...

New stats on the
Grogalizer.

But, the answer to the question is really, make all the recipes... You know The Bum did, and filtered out the bad ones and worked on the good ones to make them even better.
