Book Cover Cocktails

Happy Friday!!!! You deserve a drink after the week you’ve had. How about a cocktail?….. I absolutely love cocktails and recently bought a real pretty cocktail shaker so it’s time to shake it up! I thought it would be fun to pick out some cocktails based on book covers (I may have a skewed idea of what fun is…). I picked some favourite books and matched cocktails based on colours and the booze I prefer to drink.

  1. Ooo I love this idea! ❀ After a busy week at work, I may have to treat myself to a cocktail shaker and get mixing ;D Just finished Aeron's book in the Lords of the Underworld series, so may have to try the LotU themed Kamikaze. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Ooooh, a Kamikaze sounds really nice! As does reading LotU! I’ve stalled with the series, Gideon is my next book and I don’t really like him…
