Drinks with Reads




Welcome to Drinks with Reads, Deborah Lacy here. Every Friday, Mystery Playground features a Drinks with Reads post matching a favorite book with a fabulous drink recipe. What could be more fun that that? Wait, don't answer that, just revel in the thought of a great book with a fabulous drink. The feature was written up in the Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine and it has been our privilege over the past four years to host authors such as Patricia Cornwell, JA Jance and Peter James. 


To keep up to date you can subscribe to daily e-mails to the right of this post. You can also find Mystery Playground on Twitter @mysteryplaygnd and on Facebook
