Well, it looks like I won't finish Unsheltered before midnight, so it'll be the first read of 2019. Going to take my sparkling water and head to bed, where I'll drift off to my audiobook 🎧 Hope you all have a very happy new year!! 🎉📖 #booksandbubbles #readinthenewyear
Sharing a recent selfie for this week‘s #friyayintro!
Some facts about my selfie:
1) Taken in my bathroom.
2) Taken while drunk as a skunk (off of two glasses of red wine).
3) It was November 10th, my (late) grandmother‘s birthday. I‘m rocking red lipstick in her honor, as she never left the house without it.
4) I never seem to remember to put lotion on my hands in the Winter, so my knuckles are also a becoming shade of red. ❤️
Thrilled to learned about the finger lakes. Heard of them but never read of them. Will have a good time using the cocktail book and might use candy in coffee to make the season. (Not much autumn weather here in South Florida)Thanks for being so thoughtful.
Bear with me...if you love literature and enjoy a drink or two, this may be the book for you! Cocktails based on literary gems, including “The Last of the Mojitos” and “Love in the Time Of Kahlua.” The title of this book jumped into my mind this morning for #FlyOnTheWingsOfLove ...go figure! #SeptemberDanes
The conception is somewhat better than the execution. The cocktail recipes are fine, but the accompanying text about the literary works is slight and rather vapid. That said, I will be drinking my way through it over time, and it does look nice as a novelty item, I just wish Federle had taken his idea a little more seriously. 3/5🌟
In. A. Mood. Work has kept me away from my books to much this week. I want hard liquor and novels!!!
This week‘s #freakyfridaychallenge is in celebration of the freakin‘ weekend!
Participants will receive one entry into the drawing for a book of your choice from my own personal Top 25 list. If you decide to play mixologist & design your own custom cocktail, you‘ll get a bonus entry! (Non-alcoholic beverages welcome.)
Open only to matched Littens currently taking part in the #freakyfriday event.
(This drink is called “Drankenstein.” 🧟♂️😂)
We are supposed to get hit with ANOTHER snowstorm (happy Spring, y‘all 😤) and I am determined to ride this one out in style. And now I‘m wondering-what literary-themed cocktail should I begin with? Love in the Time of Kahlua? Lord of the Mai-Tais? A Cocktail of Two Cities?? The possibilities are endless...
Yep. I need to get this.
I want to be Lord of the Mai-Tais.
It‘s a library book. I may have to buy this one.
A quick read as I try to finish as much as I can of the Litsy Reading Challenge.
My Christmas/Birthday haul includes a ton of books for my #litsyclassics list, a fun cookbook and my personal favorite, Tequila Mockingbird 📚🍸🥃 #christmasday #jingleshelves
And as a bonus, my family‘s little fluff, Cosette 😊
Bought a few copies of this to give away as Christmas gifts this year...Then I added it to my own wishlist. 😂It‘s so clever! 🎁🍸🍹📚
Had a good, drunk winter‘s afternoon. ❄️🍻
Friday Night Read 🤷🏻♀️
I don't have any alcohol in the house currently, and no books about it on my shelves... so here is a book on my virtual tbr! I love cocktails, especially fruity ones, and ones with a literary twist are even better! I'm a sucker for a good pun! 😂
This book is LIFE! 😂🍸🍺🥂🍷🥃
Can't argue with that! 🍾🥂🍾
Haven't posted in a while due to recent move. Husband and I are now first-time homeowners. He got me this as a little house warming gift. If you do not have this for your home, GET IT. It's wonderful and I cannot wait to start making the recipes.
Trying the "Are You There God? It's Me Margarita" recipe as part of a literary cocktail themed Cinco de Mayo blog post... I'm not a huge tequila fan, but this recipe ain't half bad!
I'm very excited to have this book. Found it at a yard sale.
Lots of cool recipies with literary puns as names. Rye and Prejudice, A Rum of One's Own, The Last of the Mojitos... There are also non-alcoholic drinks like Cherry Poppins and The Wonderful Blizzard of Oz. I've marked a bunch of them to try with some of my nerdy friends 🥂🍹🍸 The only thing I thought was unnecessary was that the cocktails were classified as drinks for girls or guys.
Secret Santa Goodies 🎅🏻🎅🏻🎅🏻
There have been a lot of Christmas Amazon boxes arriving lately, and one had a surprise belated birthday present for me! ❤️🍹
