“A proper drink at the right time — one mixed with care and skill and served in a true spirit of hospitality — is better than any other made thing at giving us the illusion, at least, that we’re getting what we want from life. A cat can gaze upon a king, as the proverb goes, and after a Dry martini or a Sazerac Cocktail or two, we’re all cats.”
-From “Imbibe!” by David Wondrich
