The following quote has always been attributed to Trader Vic but today I learned he took the quote from a 1933 cocktail guide called 'The Merry Mixer or Cocktails and Their Ilk'. Yet another thing Vic "borrowed".
Dedicated to those merry souls of other days, who again will make drinking a pleasure - who achieve contentedness long before capacity, and who, whatever they drink, prove able to carry it, enjoy it, and remain gentlemen. - The Merry Mixer (1933)
Dedicated to those merry souls who make eating and drinking a pleasure; who achieve contentedness long before capacity; and who, whenever they drink, prove able to carry it, enjoy it, and remain gentlemen. - TRADER VIC (1946)
