The Great Gatsby
For The Great Gatsby, the drink needs to be bubbly.
- Sugar cube
- Lemon Twist
Add the sugar cube to the bottom of a champagne flute. Then add three dashes of bitters, fill the glass with any type of champagne you enjoy and finish with some lemon twist on top. This is fancy enough for any Gatsby party.
Pride and Prejudice
For Pride and Prejudice you will want something classic with a hint of booze; perfect for cuddling with a nice book.
- Hot chai tea
- Warm milk
Brew your chai tea and once it is complete add in milk (or any milk alternative) and a splash of whiskey (or, however much you want!). This is cozy, but not pompous.
The world created by JRR Tolkien is deep and earthy, before we had the annoyance of technology. However, because things were dangerous, I’m sure Bilbo would have appreciated a hard, stiff drink like this one.
- Coffee-flavored liqueur
Pout the desired amounts together and voila! Leave out the cream for this one, you want to enjoy the coffee and vodka alone before your next adventure.
