Fancying a can of dandelion and burdock on my walk home from the shops, I realised that there are no cocktails featuring this iconic Northern tonic. Naturally, this called for a taste test to determine what base liquor might best match the distinctive flavour of D&B. I'm only ruling out gin on this first round, but don't have the stamina to take my research further in this session.
Universal cocktail snack: Pickled Onion Monster Munch. 🍸🍸🍸🍸🤪

TrishB I‘m so needing some D & B and pickled onion MM now. A snack of champions!! 3mo
Bookwomble @TrishB I'll ask our Anthony to get you some from the corner shop when he goes for my Crunchie 😆 3mo

EvieBee @leslieo I can‘t believe it but I found both books in the series in the same Free Little Library in pristine condition! I‘ve been saving them for a perfect day but I need to seriously read them now. Is that a sign or what? I just know they‘re going to be perfect. (edited) 6mo

More housewarming gifts from my IRL friend, coworker, and occasional Litten @Cconnolly 🥰

Carolyn obviously gets me: a literary drink book, Amanda Gorman‘s fantastic inaugural poem, and Austen novel coasters!

Tamra So thoughtful! 14mo
Eyelit I have those coasters - live them. Also, belated Happy Birthday! Hope you‘re treating yourself! 14mo
sprainedbrain @Eyelit Thanks, Lesley! I‘m treating myself by reading a scary book alone in my room at night... this was a bad idea.🤣 14mo

Made “A Midsummer Night‘s Beam” today since I finished A Midsummer Night‘s Dream the other day 😜

Tianarose This looks delish! What‘s in it, if you don‘t mind me asking. 1y
MatchlessMarie @Tianarose 8 sprigs of mint muddled with 1/2 an oz of lime juice and 2 tsp of sugar at the bottom of the glass. Add ice and 2 oz of bourbon and fill with club soda. It called for 12 oz but my bottle was 10 and it wasn‘t too strong. Very refreshing! 1y
SamAnne Ooh a less deadly and more refreshing version of a mint julep. Will have to try. 1y

My sister got me this fun book of literary-themed cocktails for Christmas and I just had to try it out. This one is mint, club soda, bourbon, and lime juice, inspired by Shakespeare! The names of the cocktails are the best part. They are so clever! This would be such a fun book for a book club. I‘d love to make a new drink for each get together to try with a group.

ChasingOm I have this book too! 1y

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).
#basic 😅

Also:
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. ❤️

AmyG So pretty. And I chuckled. My Mom was the same way. She wouldn‘t get the morning paper without her lipstick on. 🤣 (edited) 4y

Granted, I worked at one for quite a while so it was easy to finds friends - especially among coworkers. Pretty much every time there was a new hire roughly around my age, I loved them instantly. It‘s like my boss was hiring friends for me. 😆 Took all the guesswork out of making them on my own, lol. Bookstore people are the best people!). 4y

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🌟

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.” 🧟‍♂️😂)
