MEDIA REVIEWS
"It's a little-known fact that the information in here will make anyone look and sound better than they actually do" --David Baldacci "...this is a wonderfully entertaining read, slight enough to be digested in one sitting, clever enough to be entertaining even if you never make a single one of the cocktails." --World of Beer blog "Tequila Mockingbird is a refreshing reminder that drinking is supposed to be fun, and it brings together the kind of cocktails you'll actually make into a book you'll actually use." --DrinkSpirits.com "You've never seen so many literary inside jokes in your whole life, which makes this little cookbook my new favorite thing... The commentary is hilarious, to boot." --FoodRiot "Ingredient by ingredient I became a fan of the ersatz bartending guide for English majors, in which summaries of classic novels and their corresponding recipes are garnished with groan-worthy puns and sepia-toned illustrations. I toast to that!" --Palm Beach Post "Pun-tastic cocktail delights ... peruse it to find your book club's next read (and cocktail)." --Epicurious.com Praise for Tim Federle's Hickory Daiquiri Dock "It's not easy to riff off childhood favorites with such a clean balance of wit and punch, but Federle nails it." --Food Network Dish "The exhaustion and the joy of parenthood are palatable. That is what makes this book exceptional. It perfectly captures both ends of the parenting spectrum." --BookTrib
