I started listening to _The Drunken Botanist_ earlier this week (and managed to return _Origin of the Feces_ as it was far too annoying with "oh, i am about to use the s word!"). I've decided that the book should be called _The Drunken, Broke Botanist_ as the first section on agave and the beverages produced there from has made me curious about fine mezcals (more details). Honestly, i probably wouldn't like them at all, but the romance of roasted agave heart, caramelized sugars, and distilling methods that might be Philippine or indigenous fascinates me. Faced with a distilled liquor, undiluted, i would probably make a face that would do Calvin of Calvin & Hobbes fame proud.
