As you have probably noticed, my blog is titled Books and Beverages. On that fateful day in March almost two years ago, I was thinking of a name for this blog and wanted a second “b” word. Since I had a beverage with me, Books and Beverages was born. I know – such a compelling and inspiring story of a blog’s name. But I figured one day I’d incorporate beverages into the blog.
And guess what? Today is that lucky day!! I think the perfect debut is a list of my favorite drinks. You know those ones I like to have whenever, the ones I read with and ones that make an appearance at book club.
Shirley Temples – 98.67% of the time I order this at a restaurant the server either laughs or makes a comment. To which I say, don’t hate son! Yeah, you can always turn this one into an “adult” version, but it’s perfect just the way it is (plus cheaper). You know, for those days when a little cherry flavor goodness just feels right.
Ho Ho Ho Punch – Thank you Pinterest for helping me find this simple, yet oh so tasteful and refreshing drink! It’s supposed to be a holiday style drink, but I can find any reason to celebrate, so I deem this a year-around drink. Three ingredients are all you need: Ginger ale, frozen strawberries and Champagne. Pour them all together in a bowl and deliciousness is served.
Cream Soda – Some people hate this drink. They probably also hate kittens and smiles too. Not my bad if you want to live life in sadness. My favorite brand is probably IBC Cream Soda, but I’ll take A&W too. I try not to drink too much soda, but this one is hard to resist.
Blackberry Sage Tea - I love tea. I can drink it all day. Made by the wonderful folks over at Republic of Tea, this is perfect just the way it is. It doesn’t even need sugar or cream added. I usually drink it hot, but it tastes just as fine cold.
Peach Tea – I love all things peach (except candy, I know strange), so any type of peace tea and I’m in. And if you’re driving around looking for a quick drink, Burger King randomly has tasty peach iced tea (this was discovered in a moment of weakness, when I was craving a burger and fries).
There are a few more I could definitely add to this list, but I’ll start with these. So what are your favorites and something I should try? I’m always up for trying a new drink and if it’s tasty I’ll include in the next version of B&B’s drink list!
