Successful Stories: Books by Past Interns
C. Jarrett Dieterle interned for the Mackinac Center’s communications department in 2011. He now works as the director of commercial freedom and a senior fellow at the R Street Institute, where he researches and writes about regulatory policy issues. His alcohol policy expertise comes to the forefront in his book Give Me Liberty and Give Me A Drink!: 65 Cocktails to Protest America’s Most Outlandish Alcohol Laws. This book offers a variety of cocktail recipes, each based off a different absurd alcohol restriction left over from the Prohibition era. Dieterle presents historical facts and stories about each policy, from New Mexico’s ban on $1 margaritas to Vermont’s law against beer pitchers. By mixing education and entertainment, he advocates for alcohol policy reform through this handbook of creative cocktails.
