Praise

"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
