I love nothing more than drinking a glass of wine or cocktail with a good book and my cats. I am truly living the stereotype. In honor of all things The Uncorked Librarian, don’t miss our newest feature: Cocktails With Character, literary cocktails paired with and inspired by favorite books.
Do you like drinking cocktails more than making them? Me too.
And, do you somewhat sort of stink at creating mixed drinks? Hands up over here.
Lastly, does the thought of trying to make a boozy concoction scare the crap out of you? I actually nailed an A+ in AP Chemistry but it doesn’t show…
If you answered yes to any of these, you’ll love our literary cocktail recipes.
I enjoy a handcrafted cocktail after a long day at work paired with a diverse book to inspire travel. If you follow me anywhere on social media, though, you know that I enlist my husband to make drinks as I bark off a ton of odd ingredients that I’d like to try. Bartending is not my forte, but I can devour a book and literary-inspired cocktail, no problem.
However, these days this rogue librarian is doing all sorts of things that make her uncomfortable: Becoming an entrepreneur with a small business. Unboxing and bartending on Instagram live. Eating bananas…
I’m teaming up with some of my favorite local distilleries, authors, and bookish people to create literary cocktails inspired by books. I hope you love them!
If you are an author or boozy business and would like to contribute, please get in touch.
