A guide to wine, beer, and spirits, including 38 original cocktails
Lively sketches of scores of saints, from the popular to the obscure
Tips on giving the perfect toast and on mixing the perfect drink

Review Quotes:
"This book is certain to reunite more than a few Catholics and Shakers. A well-researched and entertaining work--only the humor and the martinis are dry."
--Philip Greene, cofounder of the Museum of the American Cocktail and author of "To Have and Have Another: A Hemingway Cocktail Companion"

"Drinking with the Saints becomes an occasion (if not an excuse) to slow one's pace, savor a drink, and slip not into inebriation but a relaxed look at the saints."
--Father Mitch Pacwa, S.J., host of "EWTN Live"
