Fred, since you obviously have the book, could you cite the source for us please? Thanks, Zachary

His blog notes T. Cole Miller's Cocktail Dive Bar. This is one of Miller's originals:

One of the earliest Twelve Mile Limit menu cocktails, I originally wanted to call this one the Matador, but apparently that’s one of several names that people apply to the dregs that you pour out of a bar mat at the end of the night and dare your barback to drink.
Also, I don’t think I realized it until just now, but this drink definitely reads like a tequila riff on La Louisiane.

The book author’s correct name appears to be T. Cole Newton, so I’ve updated it here. Thanks @Robbyfresh!
