Alcohol, Party-Time Necessity

One of my favorite songs from the Barenaked Ladies begins with these lines:
Alcohol, my permanent accessory
Alcohol, a party-time necessity
Alchool, alternative to feeling like yourself
O Alcohol, I still drink to your health

Now, I am not one to condone excessive drinking or alcoholism, but let’s face it – a cocktail now and again ain’t too bad! This book is for gathering recipes for your favorite cocktails, whether a local specialty, a family tradition or a drink available at every bar around the world!

Please include any stories you may have about the drink – did you meet your future husband? Throw a glass of it on your mother? Drink it every birthday? – and if possible, add some illustrations! Loosen up and run wild with this journal!
