The Barkeeper’s Face

“You know what a Georgia cocktail is, don’t you?  Well, it’s rain-water and tanglefoot lightning. Take three fingers deep of tanglefoot and a glass full of the water. Swallow the lightning, heave the water into the barkeeper’s face, and then git up, and git before the bottle-slinging and shootin’ begins.”  Humors of the Railroad Kings: Authentic and Original Anecdotes of Prominent Railroad Men, 1872.
