The Delicate Task

by Gaz Regan · Saturday, November 17th, 2012 · Quotes

We are informed that all of England is amused over the assertion of a London newspaper that Sir Eric Geddes, the British Minister of Transport, was once a bartender in the United States. Sir Eric himself is reported to have ‘smiled enigmatically’ when asked for details. The fact that he mixes good cocktails is offered as circumstantial evidence of his past! But that is in England. On this side of the water there have been times and regions when every social male could make a potable cocktail. Americans did not leave the delicate task to a butler.
