Epigraph
"If you took the SAT exams back in the twentieth century, you may recall the curious puzzle 'Salt is to food, as bitters are to [blank].'  What scholar had the bright idea that high school juniors knew how to mix a proper old-fashioned anyway?"

KURT B. REIGHLEY, UNITED STATES OF AMERICANA

"So drunk in the August sun, and you're the kind of girl I like..."

PAVEMENT, "GOLD SOUNDZ"
Dedication
TO HERBERT JAMES PARSONS

(1937-2008)
First words
Cocktail culture has come a long way since I last worked behind the bar, which was in the early 1990s at Harpoon Eddie's in Sylvan Beach, New York, a town optimistically billed as "the Coney Island of Central New York."
