Publisher Comments:

2013 Goodreads Choice Award in the category of Food and Cookbooks

Congrats. You fought through War and Peace, burned through Fahrenheit 451, and sailed through Moby-Dick. All right, you nearly drowned in Moby-Dick, but you made it to shore — and you deserve a drink!

A fun gift for barflies and a terrific treat for book clubs, Tequila Mockingbird is the ultimate cocktail book for the literary obsessed. Featuring 65 delicious drink recipes—paired with wry commentary on historys most beloved novels—the book also includes bar bites, drinking games, and whimsical illustrations throughout.

Even if you dont have a B.A. in English, tonight youre gonna drink like you do. Drinks include:

The Pitcher of Dorian Grey Goose

The Last of the Mojitos

Love in the Time of Kahlúa

Romeo and Julep

A Rum of Ones Own

Are You There, God? Its Me, Margarita

Vermouth the Bell Tolls

and more!

Review:

“It's a mixologists dream of literature-inspired drinks (and bar snacks).…Handsomely illustrated, full of literary trivia, summaries and snappy patter.” Mystery Scene Magazine

Review:

“Entertaining and beautifully designed...it's a joy.” London Evening Standard

Review:

“[S]ummaries of classic novels and their corresponding recipes are garnished with groan-worthy puns and sepia-toned illustrations. I toast to that!” Palm Beach Post

Review:

“It makes a fantastic gift, but you'll also want to pick up a copy for yourself.” DrinkSpirits.com

Review:

“Another for the ever-swelling why-didn't-I-think-of-this file.” Houston Chronicle Bookish blog

Review:

“Pun-tastic cocktail delights...peruse it to find your book club's next read (and cocktail).” Epicurious.com

Review:

"A small book, perfectly gift-sized, and a fun read. Bonus? A lot of the cocktails are built in a Collins glass so are truly a pour away from drinkable. And if you skipped any of the classics mentioned in this book, Federle's descriptions might just pique your curiosity enough to pick ‘em up.” Sipsandshots.com

Synopsis:

A clever tribute to literature, Tequila Mockingbird is the cocktail book for the literary obsessed. Combining beloved classic novels with witty humor and delicious drink recipes, some of the charming recipes include Vermouth the Bell Tolls, Gin Eyre, Are You There God? Its Me, Margarita, Bridget Jones's Daiquiri, and more. Accompanying the 65 cocktail recipes are a list of tools and techniques, a spirits glossary, and a handful of drinking games and bar bites, making this cocktail book both fun and functional. With a special cover designed to look like a classic novel, whimsical illustrations, and a two-color design throughout, Tequila Mockingbird is a one-of-a-kind cocktail book.
