On a side note. Take this little book with you to Mass. Drinking with the Saints makes for great spiritual reading. It certainly helped me get through some horrid music during the Offertory. I was reading the section on St. Gregory the Great (of Gregorian Chant fame) when Hail Mary/Gentle Woman began. This little tome certainly numbed the pain.
Where'er the Catholic sun doth shine,
There's music and laughter and good red wine.
At least I've always found it so.
And cocktails and fine beer, too,
May Our Lord be e'er with you!
(Begging the pardon of the late Belloc.)
By the way, all reviews so far, save one, are right on the money accurate. The other reminds me of the way David Letterman used to have movie reviews delivered by particular specialists, e.g., an electrician reviewing The Verdict and finding the lighting completely wrong. Foley's point in the introduction has to do with sizing your drinks - a cocktail used to be a small affair - and not what Cary Grant was drinking in North by Northwest. Nit-Pickers be dashed (with bitters)! Foley knows his drinks (and his saints)!
