Cocktail Society Book Club

I'm hosting the March book and drink. 
If you care to join us we would be happy to have you. Stop back by on March 7th for review and discussion.

Each month, the members of the Cocktail Society Book Club reads a book that was selection by that month's host and then meet back here, on Cocktails and Books, to discuss it on the first Wednesday of every month. For each book, we'll have an associated cocktail, because why have a Cocktail Society if we aren't going to drink!!!

Sound fun? Join us and see what fun it is to have a cocktail with your book!

Join the Goodreads group as well.

Start reading book 2/9/12 and finish by 3/7/12

To find out more about the book and drink keep reading.

Blood Rights (House of Comarré, #1)Blood Rights (House of Comarré #1)
by Kristen Painter

The lacy gold mapped her entire body. A finely-wrought filigree of stars, vines, flowers, butterflies, ancient symbols and words ran from her feet, up her legs, over her narrow waist, spanned her chest and finished down her arms to the tips of her fingers.
Born into a life of secrets and service, Chrysabelle’s body bears the telltale marks of a comarré—a special race of humans bred to feed vampire nobility. When her patron is murdered, she becomes the prime suspect, which sends her running into the mortal world…and into the arms of Malkolm, an outcast vampire cursed to kill every being from whom he drinks.

Now Chrysabelle and Malkolm must work together to stop a plot to merge the mortal and supernatural worlds. If they fail, a chaos unlike anything anyone has ever seen will threaten to reign.


This lowball cocktail is perfect for the hunting woman. Imagine, after a day of shopping on a chilly autumn day and returning home to a Huntress Cocktail waiting for you. What a lovely thought. You might also want to try the *Hunter’s Cocktail.


1 oz bourbon
1 oz cherry liqueur
1 oz cream or milk
1 tsp. Triple Sec


1. Fill mixing glass with ice
2. Add bourbon, cherry liqueur, triple sec and cream
3. Shake
4. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass

*or if you want to try The Hunter


This lowball cocktail has the outdoorsman in mind, what with whiskey, brandy and a hint of cherry, it is a perfect way to relax after walking up and down the streets of Palermo Soho or the Recoleta, helping your “Huntress” shop for clothes. For the ladies there is also a slightly more delicate version, the Huntress Cocktail. Good luck!


* 1 1/2 oz whiskey
* 1/2 oz cherry brandy
* maraschino cherry for garnish


1. Pour the whiskey and cherry brandy into an old-fashioned glass with ice.
2. Stir well.
3. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.


  1. Those beverages sound really good! Especially right now, it's 2 degrees with a wind chill that makes it -9 degrees and were due for 3-7" of snow today.

  2. I like the idea behind this and I appreciate the earlier invite on GR. I just don't know if I have the time to squeeze any more books into my already packed schedule. Also, I like reading books in order and I see that April's pick is Lover Reborn and I'm not even close to being caught up in the BDB series... :(
