Details: Product Description Across this nation, in breweries, liquor stores, bars, and even our own homes, we're being stripped of our most basic boozy rights. Thanks to Prohibition and its 100-year hangover, some of the most outdated, bizarre, and laughably loony laws still on the books today center around alcohol and how we drink it. In New Mexico, $1 margaritas are illegal. In Utah, cocktails must be mixed behind a barrier called the "Zion curtain." And forget about happy hour in Massachusetts--the state banned it in 1984. But we don't have to stand down and dry up--it's time to take to liquid protest. Created by the nation's leading alcohol policy expert, Give Me Liberty and Give Me a Drink! combines the thirst-inducing pleasure of trivia with 65 recipes for classic and innovative cocktails. So arm yourself with a mezcal-based One Pint, Two Pint, inspired by Vermont's ban on beer pitchers, or The Boiling Point, a beer cocktail that is highly illegal in Virginia, and get ready to drink your way to a revolution on the rocks." Review "A fun look at some of the weirder booze-related laws, from Colonial times to Prohibition-era relics. A rich source of trivia and storytelling lore." --Liquor.com "You'll both laugh and wince. . . . It's a fun collection of conversation starters and cocktail recipes." --Virginia Living "Jarrett Dieterle is an engaging guide through the crazy world of American liquor laws. But his book is more than just a romp: It is an impassioned case against a senseless system propped up by entrenched and anticonsumer scolds. Come for the cocktail recipes, stay for the call to arms." --Clay Risen, author of American Whiskey, Bourbon & Rye "Stupid booze laws, snappy cocktail recipes, and profiles in booze courage make for a potent, thought-provoking mixture of fun and 'what the hell?' awareness in this high-proof volume." --Lew Bryson, author of Whiskey Master Class About the Author C.
