A Gentleman's Companion
The first volume of the Gentleman's Companion is winkingly titled "Around The World Wth Jigger, Beaker & Flask", which includes a "meaty kernel of advice for those departing for the bars" as well as "proven formulae for home construction of certain bitters". The whole book is presented in this bombastic style, perfect for those who spend their evenings tipsy, not tanked. ($295 at Atlanta Antique Gallery)
Love this! I gave this to a friend for Christmas and he loved it as well. I think it's a genius idea and even if you don't drink alcohol, it's still perfect to use to cool down your favorite beverage!
WHY TALK WHEN YOU'RE INTOXICATED! JUST CHEERS WITH THE APPROPRIATE GLASS! AND IF YOU DRINK WITH OTHER PEOPLE YOU MIGHT WANT TO THINK ABOUT BUYING A FEW SETS OF THESE DRUNK SHOT GLASSES IF YOUR COMPANY'S ON THE LEVEL!
