The 44 Secrets of Mixology: Secret #8

Secret #8 of the 44 Secrets of Mixology. Name your children well. And it’s not such an outrageous idea to think of your cocktails as children: both start as a crazy idea, you give them a name, spend a lot of time trying to make them perfect, then finally you throw up your hands and say, “A little prison time is probably just what he needs!”
It’s a very good idea to name your cocktails after deceased literary figures, especially if he or she was known to be a bit of a souse.
