reviews

“It's a little-known fact that the information in here will make anyone look and sound better than they actually do”
—David Baldacci

“…this is a wonderfully entertaining read, slight enough to be digested in one sitting, clever enough to be entertaining even if you never make a single one of the cocktails.”
—World of Beer blog

“Tequila Mockingbird is a refreshing reminder that drinking is supposed to be fun, and it brings together the kind of cocktails you'll actually make into a book you'll actually use.”
—DrinkSpirits.com

“You've never seen so many literary inside jokes in your whole life, which makes this little cookbook my new favorite thing… The commentary is hilarious, to boot.”
—FoodRiot

“Ingredient by ingredient I became a fan of the ersatz bartending guide for English majors, in which summaries of classic novels and their corresponding recipes are garnished with groan-worthy puns and sepia-toned illustrations. I toast to that!”
—Palm Beach Post

“Pun-tastic cocktail delights . . . peruse it to find your book club's next read (and cocktail).”
—Epicurious.com
