Thirsty Thursday recipe with a NANOWRIMO twist

Here’s one that should cool off all of our fast and feverish writing minds tonight or this weekend. San Luis Spirits, who produces Texas-based Dripping Springs Vodka, now offers the first Texas-produced gin called Roxor. What better way to welcome them to the gin shelf then by celebrating with a Ginoncelloade. Enjoy!

1 ounce limoncello

1 ounce gin

1 ounce cranberry juice

2 ounces club soda

Mint leaf for garnish

1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add limoncello, gin and cranberry juice. Shake well. Strain into a martini glass.

2. Top with club soda and garnish with a mint leaf (optional).

Oh, and BTW, our first NANOWRIMO boot camp class will be this Sunday, August 21 at 2:00pm at A Real Bookstore in Fairview, Texas. We are gathering together to prepare ourselves for November, when we will undertake the task of writing a 50,000 word novel in one month. Suzanne Frank, Director of the Creative Writing program at SMU will be our presenter at this first meeting. She will be speaking of the importance of a strong plot. Afterward, we will all gather together to brainstorm, critique, and have a great time talking about our possible plots, story arcs, characters, etc that will fill the pages of our NANOWRIMO projects. If you live in the DFW area, we’d love for you to join us at A Real Bookstore. Best of all, it’s free!
