An English Major Walks Into a Bar…

Ernest Hemingway Circa 1946 (Public Domain)

The relationship between writing and drinking is well established. It’s a very mixed bag, to be sure, but there’s no doubt that writers of all kinds have enjoyed the more-than-occasional cocktail.

As it’s always a good time to tuck into a good book with a trusty beverage by your side, you can kill two proverbial fowl with Tequila Mockingbird, which brings a literary twist (do get ready for a blizzard of puns) to the art of mixology. The book features 65 very-drinkable libations, each with a punchy, hugely entertaining historical preface. (We could say these intros are wry, but that would be too easy.) Selections include:

• The Last of the Mojitos
• The Pitcher of Dorian Grey Goose
• Love in the Time of Kahlúa
• A Rum of One’s Own
• Romeo and Julep

Richly illustrated, cleverly composed and ultimately quite useful, this is indeed a Book for All Seasons.
