The “Tequila Mockingbird” obviously wins this Literary Cocktail competition…
This is what I imagine Scout and Jem, as adults, might drink one summer evening on the porch of their childhood home, reliving old memories after stumbling upon a dusty bottle of tequila in the pantry. (Though I haven’t quite reconciled why Atticus may have fancied Tequila, but life’s a mystery, right?)
3 ounces lemonade
2 ounces peach nectar
1 ounce good-quality white/clear tequila
Garnish (optional): Lemon wheel or sprig of mint or peach slice (sliced from middle, halfway upward, and placed on rim)
Mix lemonade, peach nectar and tequila in a cocktail shaker and pour over crushed or cracked ice. Garnish if desired.
