I Know Why the Caged Bird Drinks

The Muse, same great taste now with less filling

For the BEA Tweetup we’re making a list of literary cocktails. Because Belvedere is providing the booze, we’re going with vodka-based drinks. (Sorry, no Tequila Mockingbird.) Calling all bored/witty drunks at work! Help us name the rest.

See if you can best these ideas:

Boris Plastered-nak
Lemon Drop City
I Know Why the Caged Bird Drinks
The Bukowski

    An agency I worked for eons ago had an Oktoberfest where we came up with the names and labels for the brews. I liked Proofreader’s Pale Ale and Endless Revisions Rye–always time for one more!

    Brilliant! A friend on twitter suggested “Michiko Kakutini” after the NYT reviewer. Oh man, we’re going to have to open our own Book-Pun Bar after all this.

    This is the best I could come up with while sober. I threw in some lowbrow ones to balance out your fancy-pants tendencies.

    Olive -or- Twist
    The Turn of the Screwdriver
    HG Well-Drinks
    A Tree Drinks in Brooklyn
    Bloody Marydian (or In Cold Bloody Mary, pick your poison)
    Their Eyes Were Watching Vodka
    A Million Martini Pieces (HARPO!)

    and just in case there’s beer available:
    Puschlitzer Prize
    Sense and Drinkability

    Have fun, Chapmaniac. Throw one back for me.
