No reason you ca n't market this book to an older generation- they 'd be more likely to have all the ingredients, anyway.Appreciated the helpful breakdown of things like different glasses/equipment, drink-making terms, and the basic types of alcohol.

Anothe review, should it be added to, will ikely be an evaluation of different recipes ( for my future benefit and yours)- but for now I understand the knowledge that Federle pairs with his clear appreciation for both literature and puns.Recipe 1: The Rye in the CatcherWhipped up this drink at an adult sleepover- or attempted to: I actually forgot to pack my lemon juice.

I do solemnly swear that I do not nderstand why I was recently gifted with multiple books on mixed drinks.

There is Paradise Sauced reference to Milton ’ s Paradise LostThe Rye in the Catcher honors Salinger ’ s The Catcher in the Rye. Aside from the recipes, there is a relativel brief discussion of glassware and equipment and a few suggested drinking games.

Sugar, for cocktail rim ( page 7) 1½ ounces vodka 1 ounce sour apple schnapps ½ ounce lime juice ½ teaspoon granulated sugar Rim a chilled cocktail glass in sugar and set aside.

So, I needed a couple of drink ideas for a social gathering I was attending and I came across this wonderful ook, " Tequila Mockingbird "!

Each recipe comes with th short satirical description of he novel and all of the bean and measurements needed to prepare these unique concoctions.

I very much enjoyed looking at the illustrations, the recipes and reading the very witty commentaries about each title ....

It 's an enchanting tribute to the world 's best stories.Reading it felt like chatting to a bookish friend and a ottle of wine.

You think your friends are brave if they " take a shot every time Dickens introduces a new character in Great Expectations. " I actually added some of the books to my to-read list.

:) his nove is th perfect gift for someone that likes reading.
