As owners of the cocktail institution, Death & Co and authors of the New York Times bestselling book of the same name and our new book, Cocktail Codex, we make and study cocktails for a living. Therefore, it is no surprise that we have a great appreciation for writers who use cocktails as a means for creating character traits or for setting a scene.
To celebrate the important role cocktails play in literature, we’ve compiled some of the most well-known books where the cocktail itself, becomes a character, along with some fun facts about each drink. – ALEX DAY AND DAVID KAPLAN, Signature
