Spirits (The Alcoholic Kind) In Songs

by Carl Wiser

There was a time when you had to be in the tropics to get a piña colada and near Mexico to order a margarita, but thanks to Rupert Holmes ("Escape (The Piña Colada Song)") and Jimmy Buffett ("Margaritaville"), these days any Applebee's bartender can make them. You know about those, but let's see if you can suss out some others in this quiz about spirits and cocktails that appear in popular songs. Cheers!
