    Jamaica Kinkaid

    My college friends (holla Grinnell) are abuzz with book-title and cocktail puns. I remember thinking about this possibility once, in high school, after seeing the Georgetown University Library’s coffee shop full of lattes named after novels. My knowledge of spirits and cocktail varieties was much more limited at the time and the best I could come up with was “One Hundred Beers of Solitude.” I’m glad to present a selection of their best:
