Friends, never let it be said that I am not committed to this blog, and to you. No assignment is too complicated; no book is too terrible (and believe me, our advance review copy pile has some real stinkers in it); no question is too difficult. This weekend, I tackled a very difficult question indeed.
What, we wondered, are the best cocktails to read by? The best drink-to-genre pairings? The most delicious, most exciting couplings of alcohol and text?
I devoted my weekend to careful, scientific research. The laundry was not done. Phone calls went unanswered. The cats grew concerned.
Some genres, of course, were more teasing than others. Science Fiction proved particularly difficult to pin down, and in the end I had to abandon my belief that its cocktail should be neon in color. I think that in the end my results were solid—although it is my hope that you will subject them to further testing.
