Witchy Brew For Halloween

Carol J. Perry joins us today to celebrate the release of her new cozy mystery, Late Checkout. Let's see what she's got brewing...

Thanks for inviting me back to Mystery Playground’s Friday Drinks with Reads!. Late Checkout, book number nine in the Witch City Mystery series from Kensington, was just released this week. This time  Lee, Pete, Aunt Ibby, and O’Ryan the cat share an adventure that begins with a dead body showing up in the stacks at Salem’s main library.  The victim turns out to be a former minor league baseball player—and ex-con—named Wee Willie Wallace—who hasn’t been seen in Salem for twenty years.
It’s October in the witch city and the traditional Halloween haunted happenings are in full swing. With help from Lee’s detective beau Pete Mondello, her Tarot reading BFF River North, her tech-savvy librarian Aunt Ibby, .her clairvoyant cat, O’Ryan and a few costumed collaborators, Lee steps up to the plate to catch the killer who took the old ballplayer out of the game!
New Englanders love their rum, and today’s special Halloween drink features three varieties of that tasty tipple! This Witchy Brew is great tasting, but powerful. Park your broom, stay home and enjoy.
  • 1 ounce light rum
  • 1 ounce dark rum
  • 1 ounce 151 rum
  • 1 ounce Cointreau orange liqueur
  • 3 ounces orange juice
  • 1 ½ ounce lemonade
  • ¼ ounce grenadine

Put one cup of ice into a cocktail shaker. Add all ingredients and shake to combine. Pour into appropriately festive Halloween glass and fill with ice. Garnish with orange wheel and straw. Serve.
(It’s wicked good.)
