Today we're thrilled to welcome four beloved romance authors to Heroes and Heartbreakers. In All I Want for Christmas is a Duke, authors Valerie Bowman, Tiffany Clare, Ashlyn Macnamara, and Vivienne Lorret, each contributed a story featuring some of our favorite holiday things—parties, stolen kisses, and so much more! Today, these authors are here to talk about something else we all love: holiday cocktails! Thank you, ladies!
The holidays are a time to make merry. And what better way to do so, say the authors of All I Want for Christmas is a Duke, than with spirits? (The kind you find in a bottle, not a haunted house.) Settle in with your own favorite libation as the authors of this fun historical holiday anthology share their favorite Yuletide drinks with you.
Valerie Bowman: In my large family, the holidays are definitely a time to eat, drink, and be merry with emphasis on drink. One of my favorite holiday beverages is fresh, hot coffee with Irish whiskey and cream. I can still remember the first time I had it in a piping hot mug. It tasted every bit as good as it smelled. Such a delight! And ever so warming on those cold winter nights. I haven’t yet had a character in one of my novels tipple a bit of whiskey into her coffee (or tea as the case may be) but now that I think on it, I need to do that. Methinks a flask must be involved. I’ll definitely be both writing and pouring a mug or two of Irish coffee this season.
