For those with a penchant for literature and a hankering for a Martini this collection of cocktails inspired by some world-renowned wordsmiths is a match made in heaven.

Written by Tim Federle, a broadway actor and self-confessed “word nerd and cocktail enthusiast”, Tequila Mockingbird is packed with cocktails and bar snack recipes for the literary minded, sure to make any book club gathering go with a bang.

Providing witty commentary with a touch historical enlightenment, Federle’s booze-fuelled walk through history’s most famed literary works is both humorous and refreshing, in more ways than one.

We especially like the creatively titled A Midsummer Night’s Beam – a magical mix of Bourbon, lime and soda.

Scroll through these excerpts for a glimpse into Federle’s creative cocktails inspired by literary masterpieces….

Tequila Mockingbird is available at Amazon UK and US.
