Five Things Friday // Tequila Mockingbird

Hello friends and Happy Friday!  It’s time to link up with Clare for Five Things Friday and Heather and Katie for their Friday Favorites.  Today I thought I’d share something fun *and a bit nerdy* that I came across – 5 Literary Cocktails.  Cheers!

The following is an excerpt from the literary cocktails recipe book, Tequila Mockingbird:Cocktails with a Literary Twist (© 2013 by Tim Federle, Running Press)

Gentle Drinker:

Congrats. You fought through War and Peace, burned through Fahrenheit 451, and sailed through Moby-Dick. All right, all right, you nearly drowned in Moby-Dick, but you made it to shore—and you deserve a drink! Hang tight, undergrad. A beer’s not going to cut it. Not this time.  To pay proper homage to the world’s greatest stories and storytellers, we’ve carefully crafted a library’s worth of literature inspired cocktails. Scholarly sips for word nerds, if you will—and the people who love them.


1 – A Cocktail of Two Cities // A Tale of Two Cities


2 – Romeo and Julep // Romeo and Juliet


3 – The Count of Monte Cristal // The Count of Monte Cristo


4 – The Pitcher of Dorian Grey Goose // The Picture of Dorian Gray


5 – Orange Julius Caesar // Julius Caesar


 Have you read the book?  Do you have a favorite from one of the above??  Can you think of one on your own???
