Bite Notes

  • Enjoy this recipe of Bourbon Lemonade from Bulleit Whiskey as you try to wrap your head around the mind-bending ending in I’m Thinking of Ending Things.

  • Savor a Bell’s Two-Hearted Ale as you join Bird Box’s Malorie in trying to survive the new world blindfolded. 

  • Try a Dark and Stormy while trying to uncover the murderer in And Then There Were None.
  • Lee Israel drinks an unhealthy amount of Scotch throughout the story of her spree of letter forging. Try Trader Joe’s Highland Single Malt Scotch, which is a mild Scotch finished in bourbon barrels.
  • Enjoy Daisy Jones and the Six with your favorite burger—the messier, the better. Sidebar Grill in Lexington has great meat and vegetarian versions, homemade potato chips, and plenty of rock ‘n roll vibes.
  • Pair The Good Lord Bird with Peach-Glazed Pearl Onions from the cookbook Afro-Vegan by Bryant Terry.
