The ’80s may be over, but the preppy attitude that pervaded the era lives on in classic drinks with a kick. Tipsy in Madras will help readers “prep” their bar, discern the brands to have on hand, mix their drinks and delve into the timeless lifestyle. The book answers such essential preppy questions as: “Do Brahmins drink beer?” and “To monogram or not to monogram?”  Although the book offers commentary on a ritzy and exclusive lifestyle, it is not ritzy and exclusive itself; rather, it is light-hearted and amusing, offering as much critique as commentary on the plaid-collar lifestyle and its favorite ways to get tipsy.
