Happy Friday friends! This week has been wickedly busy for me between work and my sister’s upcoming wedding in December but I’ve been trying my hardest to get in some book club reading time in at night. Have you been reading The Silent Wife?
So far, it’s not as creepy as just down right sad and twisted. What do you think? Later this month Amy and I will be hosting a discussion of the book so you have plenty of time to still grab it and read along!
But whether you’re planning to host your own book club this month to discuss The Silent Wife, or you simply need the perfect Halloween cocktail, these Black Licorice Widow Martinis are just the drink to try!
Blueberry pomegranate juice shaken with black vodka and Jägermeister then garnished with black widow “legs” is utterly to-die for! You don’t need to be a murderous vengeful wife to enjoy sipping on this drink. For your pregnant girlfriends at the party, make a virgin round with blueberry pomegranate juice and sparkling water…just don’t forget those widow legs! Cheers!
