Drink No.1: Tequila Mockingbird
If a drink of this title already exists, it doesn't matter, this is an original, i call tabula rasa on all literary themed cocktails.
>All of the above ingredients, shaken with ice, strained into a glass, then
Rose's Lime, Stirred in
Sink Grenadine in the shape of a mockingbird
the ingredients are supposed to represent the southern roots of the novel and perhaps the theme of the drink is the stingy, sticky, o-so-good taste of justice. If done correctly, all of your friends will be wowed at how much it actually tastes like a mockingbird.
Drink no.2: The Imperial
Gin (not gonna show any brand loyalty)
Chinotto soda (specific to italy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinotto , might be able to find it in america)
this drink mixes the spicy complexity of gin with the spicy-sweet and dry (and decidedly not like dr.pepper) taste of chinotto soda. Together, it tastes like you have money.
