Our guest on ST today is Melanie Wagner, a certified sommelier and wine consultant who lives and works in Chicago. She is also the author of "Hello, Wine: The Most Essential Things You Need to Know About Wine," which is newly available from Chronicle Books.

And this expression, of course, was as true in the 1770s or 1860s or 1930s as it is today --- and maybe it's all the more fitting right this instant, as we approach the holiday season. On today's show, therefore, we are discussing the histories, traditions, origins, myths, and/or recipes related to various cocktails.
