The Pre- Party Giveaway Hop is being hosted by READING ROMANCES in celebration of RR's upcoming blogversary party on March 29th, 2012. 
What I'm giving away:

An Autographed Copy of Kim Harrison's, BLACK MAGIC SANCTION to one lucky commenter.

Rachel Morgan has fought vampires, werewolves, demons, and other supernatural dangers as both witch and bounty hunter and lived to tell the tale. But she's never faced off against her own kind--until now.

I have found the perfect drink while reading this book--

Black Magic

1 ounce  Vodka
1 ounce Coffee Liqueur
1 dash Lemon Juice

Stir and serve in an old-fashioned glass over ice. Garnish with a twist of a lemon peel.

**or if that doesn't float your boat, try this one:

Voodoo Juice

Quantities for one drink:

•1 oz Orange Rum (Cruzan)
•1 oz Banana Rum (Cruzan)
•1 oz Coconut Rum (Cruzan)
•1 oz Pineapple Rum (Cruzan)
•1 1/2 oz Cranberry Juice
•1 1/2 oz Orange Juice
•1 1/2 oz Pineapple Juice
•1/2 oz Dark Rum (Cruzan)

Blending Instructions:
•Pour over ice in a hurricane class

•Float dark rum on top and serve

To win a copy of BLACK MAGIC SANCTION:
1. Follow my blog. Tell me what name you follow under in your comment.
2. Leave a comment with your email address so that I can contact you if you win.

Have fun and be safe!

  1. My favorite drink is actually a shooter, but trust me, it qualifies as a drink. I was bartender for a long time and this was one of my favorites to suggest and drink. This drink also reminds me of Algiarept, the demon that is consistently growing on me.

    Sex with an Alligator

    1/2 oz. of Midori
    splash of sweet & sour
    1/2 oz. of Chambord
    1/2 oz. of Jaegermeister

    Add first 2 ingredients w/ice to shaker and strain into glass(shot or martini). Slowly pour Chambord down side of glass. Chambord will sink to the bottom. Slowly pour Jaeger on side of the glass. Jaeger will float on the top and the drink will be 3 layered. Red on the bottom, green in the middle and brown/black on the top.


    1. WOWZA--I'm writing that one down-sounds very refreshing and delish :)
      Have a great weekend!

  2. Not really much of a drinker so I don't know clever drink recipes. May have to save these recipes and send them down to my brother in SC. Last time I was there he was saving all kinds of drink recipes to try.

    Man I am so behind on Kim Harrison's books. They are such excellent books.

    And you already know what names I use.. I'm pretty easy. LOL.
