“A good friend knows how you take your coffee. A great friend adds booze”

"A good friend knows how you take your coffee. A great friend adds booze” has been printed on several gift items, such as coffee mugs and posters. The saying has been cited in print since at least 2007.

Pg. 125:
She sipped decaffeinated coffee from her favorite mug that said—A good friend knows how you take your coffee. A great friend adds booze. She bought it when she and Lenor were browsing in a Hallmark card and gift store.
