Book Cover Cocktails

Happy Friday!!!! You deserve a drink after the week you’ve had. How about a cocktail?….. I absolutely love cocktails and recently bought a real pretty cocktail shaker so it’s time to shake it up! I thought it would be fun to pick out some cocktails based on book covers (I may have a skewed idea of what fun is…). I picked some favourite books and matched cocktails based on colours and the booze I prefer to drink.
