Laura Brennan joins us from Los Angeles today to talk about Frankie Y. Bailey's new book, What The Fly Saw, and match it with the perfect drink -- Kahlua and hot chocolate.
This series departs from the norm. First, it’s set in the near future in an alternate-reality Albany. The gizmos and details of our world may be a bit different, but human beings are much the same, even in this parallel universe. They still have complicated relationships with their families; sex, drugs and politics still play a central role in daily life; and people still murder each other to protect themselves, their loved ones, and their secrets.
2 Tablespoons powdered cocoa*
1 ounce Kahlua
Fresh whipped cream
Powdered cinnamon for garnish
Add the powdered cocoa; stir until completely dissolved.
Stir in the Kahlua.
Add a dollop of whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.
*For me, the Kahlua adds enough sweetness, but you can use hot chocolate mix, which comes pre-sweetened, instead of powdered cocoa if you prefer, or if you’re omitting the liqueur.
Laura Brennan is thrilled to join Drinks with Reads and share Frankie Y. Bailey’s latest novel, What the Fly Saw. Having an excuse to make Kahlua Hot Chocolate had nothing to do with it… You can find out more about Laura at LauraBrennanWrites.com
