My Rating: 4/5 boozy stars

My review: What’s better than reading a good book? Reading a good book with a good cocktail in hand! Even if you aren’t a big drinker, flipping through this cocktail cookbook is a total delight. Each drink is named after a classic book and includes a gorgeous illustration and (often hilarious) anecdote alongside the recipe. I made a Drankenstien last night in order to provide the highest quality review possible for you. You know, for research… that’s why I did it.


Spoiler alert: it was delicious.

Tequila Mockingbird is the perfect gift for the boozy book lover in your life. You can find it here!
