Best-selling creator in the gift channel, Mary Phillips collects her cocktail wit and wisdom in a charming keepsake book.

Admit it already. Life is always better after a margarita or three. Artist and aperitif advocate Mary Phillips shares her cocktail wit and wisdom inside this intoxicating smash titled Why Limit Happy to an Hour?

Whether the subject is cocktails, men, chocolate, weight, relatives, motherhood, or just plain unadulterated attitude, Phillips finds a way to sum up life's happenings one zinger at a time. For example:

* "I used to care but now I take a pill for that."

* "Inside me is a thin woman screaming to get out . . . I can usually keep the bitch quiet with chocolate."

* "When life gives you lemons, add vodka."

Phillips promises to stimulate the economy one drink at a time with this keepsake book of witticisms featuring her popular full-color artwork and sassy one-liners. Now cheers to that!
