Alcoholics with a reading problem


An intern that loves making puns at work. College friends that loved speculating who among students would be which literary character. My half Polish office-mate from New York City who studied literature and preferred to stay up till 2AM to finish a book to going out. Several of my lady friends that like to throw themed parties in style [one of them successfully made several diplomats to dress up as Great Gatsby characters recently].

These are the people who came to my mind when I saw Tim Federle’s Tequila Mockingbird: Cocktails with a Literary Twist. As the title reveals, you can guess what this cocktail recipe book entails. Here are some of my personal favorites:

  • A Rum of One’s Own
  • Gone with the Wine
  • The Pitcher of Dorian Grey Goose
  • Gin Eyre
  • The Last of the Mojitos
  • Absinthe Shrugged
  • Love in the Time of Kahlua
  • The Joy Luck Club Soda
  • Bridget Jones’s Daiquiri
  • Crime and Punish-mint
  • Vermouth the Bell Tolls
  • Orange Julius Caesar
  • Olives ‘n’ Twist
  • The Old Man and the Seagram’s
  • A Cocktail of Two Cities
