Mixed drinks long have been a mark of gracious
living. This, week the Tooth Picks explores some of
the types of cordials (liqueurs) used to make them
and provides you with the recipes for some well
First of all, there is no difference between cordials
and liqueurs. They are created by adding flavoring to
.a previously prepared spirit base generally brandy or
a neutral liquor with fruits and plants. A liqueur, is
defined by law as an alcoholic beverage which is
sweetened and flavored with at least 2 sugar,
however, most are between 10 and 35 sugar.
Brandy is made by first distilling fruit into wine
and then further distilling the wine into a sweet
liqueur. As many as 10 bottles of wine may be used
to make a single bottle of brandy. Brandy is one of
the mot exnensiwe liqueurs and may cost between
$10 and $50 u bottle, with cost being directly
proportional to quality. Cognac is simply a very high
Curacao derives its name from a small island in the
Dutch West Indies. It is made from a peel of a small
bitter orange grown on the island.
Creme' de cocao is created from the creamy
blending of chocolate and vanilla.
Cointreau is very similar to curacao, being made
with the distillations from small bitter oranges.
Drambuie, made from an ancient secret formula, is
made from the finest oid Highland malt Scotch
whiskey and heather honey, 80 proof.
Angostura and Aromatic Bittlers are included in
some of our recipes. They are also liqueurs, used
primarily to give drinks a special accent or flavor.
Mixing good drinks takes knowledge and practice.
It is essential to follow the directions exactly. When
in doubt always measure. If a recipe says stir, then
stir and do not shake. Stiring produces a clear drink '
while shaking produces a cloudy one. The quality of
the drinks will depend on the quality of the alcoholic
base. It is better to have a few good bottles than to
have a variety of inferior ones.

The biggest decrease in
contributions to PACE came '
between second semester
1971-72 ($20,018) and first
semester 1972-73 ($7,500).
Pedersen said switching to a
voluntary contribution system
accounted for the decrease.
During PACE'S first year the
$3.50 contribution from each
student was automatic unless
the student indicated otherwise
on his tuition statement.
Ritchie said the dropoff is
misleading because collections
the first year were bolstered by
donations from faculty and
businessmen as well as
promotions to raise additional
According to Pedersen,
general ignorance of PACE'S
goals has hurt the program.
"During tha first year,
PACE was talked about and
written about a great deal.
That kind of publicity has not
been felt since that year," she
"In order to generate that
kirsd of money (about $50,000
the first year) there must be a

"The new people on campus
haven't been in on all the
discussions about PACE," she
said. "They only see it as
something tha would add
$3.50 to their expenses."
Apathy was not the case in
1971 when 5,000 students
petitioned for PACE'S
