You could be forgiven for thinking that today‘s #AyUpAugust prompt was “really bad puns” when the choice of book is #Tequila Mockingbird...

arlenefinnigan HAHAHAHAHA OMG OK so we're walking through Bradford City centre and there's a saxophone player playing Tequila (not the Terrorvision one, the other one). Then he played the Benny Hill tune. Today is going to be great. 1mo

My favorite bookstore, E. Shaver Booksellers, started a new book club, Tequila Mockingbird, where we discuss classic works of literature and enjoy the 🍸 named after said work. It's my new fave.

Sharing a recent selfie for this week‘s #friyayintro!

Some facts about my selfie:
1) Taken in my bathroom.
2) Taken while drunk as a skunk (off of two glasses of red wine).
#basic 😅

Also:
3) It was November 10th, my (late) grandmother‘s birthday. I‘m rocking red lipstick in her honor, as she never left the house without it.
4) I never seem to remember to put lotion on my hands in the Winter, so my knuckles are also a becoming shade of red. ❤️

AmyG So pretty. And I chuckled. My Mom was the same way. She wouldn‘t get the morning paper without her lipstick on. 🤣 (edited) 10mo

monalyisha @TheBookKeepers D‘awww! Okay! Let‘s do it! 🙃 (I‘ve met some of my favorite people at bookstores! Granted, I worked at one for quite a while so it was easy to finds friends - especially among coworkers. Pretty much every time there was a new hire roughly around my age, I loved them instantly. It‘s like my boss was hiring friends for me. 😆 Took all the guesswork out of making them on my own, lol. Bookstore people are the best people!). 10mo

Thrilled to learned about the finger lakes. Heard of them but never read of them. Will have a good time using the cocktail book and might use candy in coffee to make the season. (Not much autumn weather here in South Florida)Thanks for being so thoughtful.

Bear with me...if you love literature and enjoy a drink or two, this may be the book for you! Cocktails based on literary gems, including “The Last of the Mojitos” and “Love in the Time Of Kahlua.” The title of this book jumped into my mind this morning for #FlyOnTheWingsOfLove ...go figure! #SeptemberDanes

The conception is somewhat better than the execution. The cocktail recipes are fine, but the accompanying text about the literary works is slight and rather vapid. That said, I will be drinking my way through it over time, and it does look nice as a novelty item, I just wish Federle had taken his idea a little more seriously. 3/5🌟

This week‘s #freakyfridaychallenge is in celebration of the freakin‘ weekend!

Participants will receive one entry into the drawing for a book of your choice from my own personal Top 25 list. If you decide to play mixologist & design your own custom cocktail, you‘ll get a bonus entry! (Non-alcoholic beverages welcome.)

Open only to matched Littens currently taking part in the #freakyfriday event.

(This drink is called “Drankenstein.” 🧟‍♂️😂)

Clwojick I was so busy the past few days, and totally missed this post until now. Might still have to make a cocktail “in the name of Litsy ” and totally not just because it‘s been a hard week. Lol 😂 1y

We are supposed to get hit with ANOTHER snowstorm (happy Spring, y‘all 😤) and I am determined to ride this one out in style. And now I‘m wondering-what literary-themed cocktail should I begin with? Love in the Time of Kahlua? Lord of the Mai-Tais? A Cocktail of Two Cities?? The possibilities are endless...

Angitron I've seen this around but never peeked inside - are the recipes super complex? 2y
Bookworm54 @Angitron I'm not too sure. I think they are medium complexity. With cocktails it's normally finding the ingredients that causes issues 😋 2y

Lots of cool recipies with literary puns as names. Rye and Prejudice, A Rum of One's Own, The Last of the Mojitos... There are also non-alcoholic drinks like Cherry Poppins and The Wonderful Blizzard of Oz. I've marked a bunch of them to try with some of my nerdy friends 🥂🍹🍸 The only thing I thought was unnecessary was that the cocktails were classified as drinks for girls or guys.
