Literary-Inspired Cocktails

Looking for a fun drink to serve at your next book club meeting? Or are you putting together a menu for a literary-themed party? Author Tim Federle would like to make your job easier with his THREE cocktail recipe books featuring drinks inspired by classic books.

Tequila Mockingbird, Gone With the Gin, and Are You There God? It's Me Margarita each include close to 50 unique cocktail recipes, so if you can't find a drink you like here, it doesn't exist. Each book also contains an array of book-themed snack recipes as well, so there's your party sorted!

From Tequila Mockingbird, try "One Flew Over The Cosmo's Nest," a sweet potion featuring vodka, cranberry juice, triple sec and lime juice, inspired by One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

Or how about a "Gin Eyre," a refreshing drink inspired by Jane herself including gin, sugar, lemon juice, mint and orange bitters.

Or you might like to serve a punch to your guests known as "The Adventures of Sherbet Holmes," featuring champagne, ginger ale, berry sorbet and fresh blueberries.

Each book includes a chapter of virgin drinks, like "Goodnight Moonshine" in Are You There God, It's Me Margarita. This nighttime warmer features warm milk, brewed camomile tea and honey.
