Random Thoughts: A Funny Look at Our Strange World
By Jack W. Smith, BS ’67, Life Member
Are mattresses ever not on sale? Why aren’t right-handed baseball pitchers called northpaws? In this collection of humorous essays, mostly culled from columns written for The Wacoan, Smith asks all the important questions—and some not-so-important ones. He has a fondness for clean humor and puns (“Why do we seem to always be short on math teachers? Can’t they multiply?”).

Tipsy Texan: Spirits and Cocktails From the Lone Star State
By David Alan, BA ’08, Life Member
What makes a drink truly Texan? According to Austin-based cocktail pro David “The Tipsy Texan” Alan, the mark of a Lone Star-style beverage is fresh, unpretentious ingredients and bold flavors. Many will appreciate how approachable the drinks are—most of these recipes have only three or four ingredients. And several of those ingredients are made by UT alumni, including Tito Beveridge, BS ’84, Life Member, of Tito’s Vodka, and Paula Angerstein, BA, BJ ’82, who became the first female distiller in Texas when she started Paula’s Texas Spirits.
Whether you’re feeling classic (a basic margarita) or adventurous (an Absinthe Yvette, anyone?), this is a great addition to any home bar. We’ll be eagerly awaiting whatever Alan mixes up next
