My wife and I just received this book from the UPS man. We have had it pre-ordered for about two months. We both attended one of David Alan's Tipsy Tech courses and enjoyed it immensely. David is an entertaining, engaging, and knowledgeable speaker, so we had high expectations for his first book. We were not disappointed. The first two cocktails we made (the Showgirl and the Silk Road) both rated a "Wow" upon first tasting. We can't wait to try more drink recipes in the book.

David has a wonderful sense of fun that shines through when he writes or speaks. (I recall for example the "bad gin stories" reference from his Tipsy Tech class.) We think that you will find the this book both informative and entertaining. Check it out!

Another great Texan book to absolutely have in your home....the drinks are just out of this world, all with a Texan twist or so, but still fairly easy to create and to get down your throat....Love it!

This was a great addition to my collection of cocktail books. The author has a really engaging writing style that mixes his personal history with cocktail history, Texas history, and the stories of local craft spirit makers and bartenders. I've only tried one recipe so far, the Corpse Reviver 3000 (a twist on the traditional Corpse Reviver #2), but based on the deliciousness of that drink, I have a very good feeling about his other recipes. I was on the fence about buying this for a while because I just didn't know if it would be different enough from the other cocktail recipe books I own, but while there's a certain amount of overlap (he includes basic, classic recipes like mojitos and margaritas), much of the content seems to be unique to this book. Oh, and the photography is gorgeous, so it would also make an impressive gift for your booze-loving friends!

I recently bought Tipsy Texan at "Glitz, Glamor and Gals" in Brownwood, Texas. I bought the book and David Allen wrote and signed the book which is for a gift. I would like to order another one but I need it to be signed also. He wrote "For Traci--Mom says read up: She's thirsty. Cheers! D Allen 2014" I need the additional book to be the same except for name. Should be "For Jody" etc. If this is possible, please respond. It will be a Christmas gift. Thank you: Betty Loudermilk, 1312 Willis, Brownwood, Texas 76801 cell 325-200-8058. I love the book.
