Because Books, Book Clubs and Cocktails GO Together . . . .
⚜ At LAST the moment we’ve all (or many of us) have been waiting for . . . . The COCKTAIL RECIPES to accompany RIBBONS OF SCARLET are live!!!
I personally designed these drinks for the marvelous Morrow Book Club supplement (which when full assembled will also include deleted scenes from Ribbons of Scarlet that you won’t find elsewhere). Let’s just say my co-authors know and appreciate my talents 😉
The cocktail recipes were created with help from my very patient panel of taste-testers (read “family”). Yes, they did all the hard labor and now all you have to do is decide if you are a pike wielding revolutionary, a fire-side sitting philosopher, or a royalist committed to the Ancien Régime and, Voila, we have the perfect cocktail for you to sip as you read Ribbons of Scarlet. But lest you think this is all frivolity, I’ve not stinted on the history—the guide includes a discussion of how alcohol and the French Revolution entwined (you knew they had to because during the revolution EVERYTHING became political).
So GATHER YOUR BOOK CLUB, mix a drink (or try them all), then let me know what you think!!! ⚜ ⚜
