Bar-Tending with Writers

   Drink for golfers is aiming fluid, for drivers it's DUI, and for writers its oil of inspired transmission.  As I read more and more I hope to find drinks described by authors.  Enjoy them if you are over 21. 


“That's the problem with drinking, I thought, as I poured myself a drink. If something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen.”
Charles Bukowski, Women
