TEQUILA MOCKINGBIRD

From TEQUILA MOCKINGBIRD

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD (1960) BY HARPER LEE

Harper Lee’s novel is the oft-taught tale told by little Scout Finch, watching her Alabama town rally behind a lying 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 modeled after Truman Capote. After a conclusion that leaves you both hopeful and haunted, toast to a sometimes sour justice system with a tequila shot that’s guilty of packing a dill pickle punch.

MAKES 1 DRINK

1-1/2 ounces tequila
2 drops hot sauce
1 dill pickle

Pour the tequila into a shot glass, add the hot sauce, and slam that bad boy back before chasing with a big chomp of pickle. No tears allowed here: if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the South.
