Books and bottles

Kevin's picture

Great writers often have a strong taste for the pleasures of life, and a cool drink is high on the list. This weeks eBooks look at the connection between authors and alcohol, both in their writing and their lives. Whether you are a teetotaler or a tippler, these books are full of interesting stories and a good way to indulge in a few literary libations.

  • Tequila Mockingbird will teach you how to mix up literary inspired cocktails like Rye and Prejudice, The Old Man and Seagrams and Bridget Jones's Daiquiri.
  • Hemingway and Bailey's Bartending Guide to Great American Writers combines biographical information about America's greatest and thirstiest writers, with recipes inspired by their beverage of choice.
  • To Have and Have Another explores Ernest Hemingway's love of a good cocktail, the way this infused his writing and, of course, recipes for the drinks he and his character's enjoyed.

Happy Reading!
