Other highlights include:
- A dizzying treatment of Ben Franklin's "Drinker's Dictionary."
- How to make Cock Ale in the original 18th century way.
- Taste tests of Cranberry Shrub, Milk Punch, the Hot Flip, and Ginger Liqueur.
Plus, a reflection on the end of the Ringling Bros., Barnum & Bailey Circus after nearly 150 years. (And do you remember that unicorn?)
