Who remembers TEQUILA MOCKINGBIRD by Tim Federle? Here’s a throwback to one of his recipes:
The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890)
By Oscar Wilde
Boy, did this book have it all: knife fights, magic paintings, and (spoiler alert!) people who never age. Wilde wasn’t just ahead of the cosmetic surgery book here—he also pushed he envelop on homoeroticism, resulting in widespread censorship in later versions of the book. Try getting your hangs on the juicy early copies of Dorian, and then gather a group of aging beauty queens (or simply aging queens), who’ll be guaranteed to love our hedonistic youth serum. Just keep them away from your expensive art.
Makes about 8 Drinks
10 sprigs fresh mint, washed
1 (12-ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate
2 cups vodka (like Grey Goose)
Cucumber, sliced into wheels, for garnish
Tear the mint, then place in the pitcher. Add the lemonade concentrate and stir until thawed. Pour in the vodka and 3 cups cold water and stir. Serve over ice, garnish with the cucumber wheels, and remember: age before beauty—if anyone will fess up.
