I’m headed down to Portland (that other West Coast culinary Mecca) this weekend to visit some friends and to take a pilgrimage to the holiest of Holies – Powell’s Book. I was browsing their website when I came across this. Resistance was futile.
Tequila Mockingbird: Cocktails with a Literary Twist
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? It’s 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.
