I live in Texas and my favorite mixed drink is a Margarita on the rocks with salt!

I would love to win a copy of this book. All 4 of my kids waited tables and some bartended during college to earn money. I think this would be a really neat book to have on hand when they come home to visit! Thanks for the giveaway.
