Think-a-Drink Hoffman

Jesus ain’t a drug next to Mr. Charles “Think-a-Drink” Hoffman (1895-1965). The former just changed water into wine; the latter could produce ANY beverage named by an audience member from the same cocktail shaker. Dressed as a mixologist from a high class hotel bar, he performed this very fluid magic act in vaudeville theatres, revues and nightclubs in the 30s and 40s.
