Book Pairing: Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo (Reviewed Mar. 21, 2020)
I knew going into reading Ninth House I wanted a "magic" infused gin cocktail. I needed something simple, as it's based around a college town. So basic college G & T. But. This. Gin. Changes. Color. YUP. When you add tonic water, it changes from purple to blue to pink. This fit the bill. Also you must serve it in a coppa glass - you can sub a large wine goblet as well. Don't have one? Every gin drinker needs a large wine goblet - head to Amazon, folks. I also appreciate this orange slice. I don't like limes. Ninth House doesn't strike me as a pre-sliced "bar lime" kind of novel. Grab yourself some Vitamin C. Enjoy!
