15 Cocktails inspired by literary greats

Harper Lee

Harper Lee is one of the greatest American authors of all time. Although Go Set a Watchman was recently released, we still think of Lee as primarily a one-novel genius – a perception justified by the fact that both novels were originally one. To Kill a Mockingbird tells a powerful story of racial inequality from the point of view of a child, and has become a classic of modern American literature.

The Harper Lee cocktail

Shake 1 ½ ounces of Bourbon and the same measure of peach liqueur and a dash of bitters. Pour into a flute and top with Champagne then garnish with a peach slice.

Lee’s cocktail is inspired by the American South, drawing on peaches and Bourbon to create a full-flavoured drink. Bitters prevents it from becoming overly sweet, and the Champagne brings all the elements into a balance.
