Tequila Mockingbird: Cocktails with a Literary TwistTitle: Tequila Mockingbird: Cocktails with a Literary Twist
Author: Tim Federle
Synopsis:  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 history’s most beloved novels — the book also includes bar bites, drinking games, and whimsical illustrations throughout.

Even if you don’t have a B.A. in English, tonight you’re gonna drink like you do. Drinks include:
The Pitcher of Dorian Grey Goose
The Last of the Mojitos
Love in the Time of Kahlua
Romeo and Julep
A Rum of One’s Own
Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margarita
Vermouth the Bell Tolls
and more!
Review:  I saw this book on display in the library and had heard about it but never picked it I picked it up. Flipping through I spotted a drink recipe for Rye and Prejudice
3 ounces grape fruit juice
1 1/2 ounces rye whiskey

Pour the ingredients over ice in a rocks glass, sitting like a complicated heart. We hold no prejudice against marrying up, ladies, but you don't need a castle (or a king) to be a queen.
The book is full of these fun recipes and each drink comes with a witty description of the book.
