This is not a test for people whose liquor knowledge begins and ends with Vodka-Crans and the occasional tequila shot. This is a test for those with near-genius level liquor IQs, those who have read Jerry Thomas’s works from cover to cover, those who know that mezcal is over and the new Mexican spirit to watch is raicilla. This is for the pros. Think you have what it takes? Answer these nine questions and prove your boozy prowess.

2) Which of these is not a famous cocktail book?
a) The Drunken Botanist
