After some gentle advice from a newfound friend and mentor, I have started this. In order to bring luck and order, some words I read last night in my most recently aquired, and now oldest cocktail book in my growing collection.
For All Good Fellows Who Will Not Drink Alone
Here's to Woman - the fairest work of the great author. The edition is large, and no man should be without a copy.
May the best day we have seen be the worst that is to come.
Drink and the world drinks with you, Swear off and you drink alone. (Seen before but I love it!)
From Charles Delmonico's
Punches and Cocktails
New and revised edition 1934
