To Kill A Mockingbird (1960) by Harper Lee - All one-hit wonders should hit so hard! Harper Lee's only novel is the often-taught tale told by little Scout Finch, watching her Alabama town rally behind a drunk's lying daughter, who's up and accused an innocent African-American man of taking advantage of her. Lucky for Scout - who watches from a courtroom balcony as her lawyer father defends the man - she's got levelheaded pals by her side, including Dill, who is famously modelled after Truman Capote. In order to survive those hot summer nights in southern Alabama, Atticus Finch and his friends and neighbours needed to cool down with a strong drink, and you should, too with this tequila cocktail.
2 oz tequila
3 or 4 blackberries
8 sage leaves
1 oz lime juice
1/2 tbsp of simple syrup (or sugar syrup)
- Mix 2 oz. of tequila, 3 or 4 blackberries, and 8 sage leaves in a cocktail shaker.
- Then add 1 oz. of lime juice, ½ tbsp. of simple syrup and ice.
- Shake well. Strain into your glass and garnish with the sage leaves.
