Overview

There’s a patron saint for everything. And Michael Foley has a drink for every patron saint.

Have a problem with the IRS? Pray to St. Matthew and mix up a classic Income Tax cocktail to toast the tax collector apostle. Looking for a deal at a gun show? Try St. Adrian of Nicomedia, the patron of arms manufacturers, and raise a glass of craft beer from Denver’s Call to Arms in the saint’s honor. Or stir up a Gunfire, traditionally served to British soldiers on Christmas Day. Need to sell your house? Ask St. Joseph for his help and honor his patronage with a Sazerac, made with wormwood in honor of his trade as a carpenter. Drinking with Your Patron Saints gives you a saint for every occasion. Packed with inspiring stories and delicious drink recipes for saints from Adam to Zita, this book will be a boost to your spiritual life—and your spirits.
