CL: What inspired you to write the book It's 5 o'clock Somewhere?
CM: It all started for me at 5:00 on a trip to Paris a few years ago. I was sipping a Champagne cocktail in a fabulous hotel lobby bar, listening to music and munching on those delectable bar snacks. I suddenly thought, this is what we all need, to visit all the luxe and fabulous places around the globe and sample their 5:00 cocktails. So my quest began to write a book on global cocktail favorites, including tidbits about each location, the cocktail of the moment, and downloadable playlists to keep you in the global mood!
