Book Review: Tequila Mockingbird

We were recently asked to review the new cocktail book Tequila Mockingbird by Tim Federle.  Seriously, with a title like that, how could we say no???  The subtitle is "Cocktails with a Literary Twist" and since we're both named after literary heavyweights (Flannery O'Connor and Katherine Anne Porter) we couldn't resist!  With drinks like "Are You There God?  It's Me Margarita" and "The Turn of the Screwdriver" this book is super clever with drink recipes that are easy to make and quite tasty!  Go here to get a copy for the literary nerd in your life!

Taste Test Thursday: Skinny Cow

When Skinny Cow asked us to review their new low calorie chocolate candy we were a bit skeptical. If you've read the list of ingredients for any one of our cocktails, you know that we're all about going big or going home when it comes to calories!  But since we do get readers asking for lower calorie options, we thought we'd give it a whirl!  We were pleasantly surprised!  These are super tasty!  Flannery was particularly fond of the peanut butter filled ones, while Katherine liked the caramel filled best! Three pieces of candy for only 130 calories= not too shabby!
