Tequila Mockingbird, Cocktails with a Literary Twist by Tim Federle

When a fellow book blogger gives you a gift of a book, you know you’re in for something special.  Thanks to JuliaPicks1 I had the pleasure of spending almost a week slowly savoring this book.  Each page is a small summary of a literary work follow by a drink inspired by the book.  After starting to mark pages with small post it notes and realizing that I was going to make the book doubly thick, I started just marking drinks I had no interest in (yes there were a few!).  Many of the books highlighted I had read and so enjoyed the humorous angle the author uses not just in the description but in the drink. This is the perfect gift for readers and non-readers alike.

Next up, Gone with the GIN!  – sounds like a book made especially for me!
