Christina from You Book Me All Night Long wins for deliciousness, originality, wittiness, and making me spew coffee from laughing:
“OK, this was too much fun! 🙂 I had a blast coming up with my bookish brew, which I’ve called The Pitcher of Dorian Earl Gray. It’s very easy to make — simply brew the tea, let it cool to room temperature, then pour it over ice and serve. Mix the room-temperature beverage with a syrup composed of sugar and water, if you’re craving something a little more sinfully decadent. But above all, make sure you take a photo of the pitcher before serving the tea. The picture will look less and less appealing with time, but you’ll ensure that your beverage will taste fresh and delicious forever!”

I don’t know about you, but nothing pairs with a book like a mug of coffee or a cup of tea. I’m also sure that some level of caffeinating is underway for nearly all of us readathoners. What better way to celebrate the joys of my most favorite bookish beverage than with a java-junkie mini-challenge. Here we go:
The goal is to dream-up a coffee or tea related beverage with a literary bent. There are many ways to go about this:
1) You could spin me a pun: example — The Metamorphopress of Kafkas (French press of coffee)
2) You could have something inspire by a book or author: — example The Robert Frost (a mint mocha)
3) Or you could find some other creative bent. Maybe a coffee or tea drink a certain character would have loved.
What I need from you is the marriage of coffee/tea and books. Make sure to put the “recipe” out to the side so I know exactly what the drink contains. You will be judged based on cleverness, originality, and perceived deliciousness.
The winner will be announced at the end of hour 12. The winner will receive one pound of Inman Perk Coffee and perhaps a few other surprises.
If you really hate coffee and tea (what are you a robot?) then feel free to submit a different literary beverage, just be aware that if you win you get coffee.
May the Froth be with you!
