Survival Coffee and A Merciful Truth

Today Drinks with Reads comes from best-selling author Kendra Elliot,  three time winner of the Daphne du Maurier award for Romantic Suspense, three-time Thriller Writers' finalist and a Romantic Times finalist. She grew up in the lush Pacific Northwest and still lives there with her husband, three daughters, two cats, and two Pomeranians. She's always been fascinated with forensics, refuses to eat anything green, and can't wait to wear flip flops every day.

In A MERCIFUL TRUTH, Mercy Kilpatrick is an FBI agent who was raised by survivalists. She is always prepared for the absolute disruption of life as we know it. No electricity, no food supply, no medicine. Outside of her job, she obsesses over preparing her cabin hideaway, installing alternative power sources, and building up her supplies. Everything she saves must have a purpose; there is no room for luxuries. 

Throughout the Mercy Kilpatrick series, she always orders an Americano with heavy cream. It’s something simple that serves a purpose to caffeinate, but she lets her guard down and indulges in a touch of luxury with the cream. 

If Mercy wanted a drink to truly relax, (something she doesn’t know a lot about) I think she would enjoy A SURVIVAL COFFEE.

1 shot espresso 
8 ounces hot water
2 oz Irish whiskey
1 oz simple syrup
1 oz heavy cream
whipped cream

fresh cinnamon
