Killer Cocktails

This month’s exclusive Killer Nashville Killer Cocktail: T’Killer Mockingbird

We couldn’t pass up this opportunity to pay homage to Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird, especially since her long awaited sequel Go Set A Watchman is now available.

Barnes & Noble Bookstores celebrated the new release recently with a nationwide reading of To Kill a Mockingbird aloud, in all stores, from start to finish. The local, all-day read-a-thon featured a variety of special guest readers, including our very own, Killer Nashville Founder and Publisher Clay Stafford.

In our quest to create literary-themed cocktails, Mark “Spaz” Morris didn’t want to go the traditional route. So he created this new, original cocktail that colors the palette with rich strawberry flavor and balances it with soothing, aged tequila.
