You’ve all known I love to shake things up as The Intoxicologist. This time I’m shaking things up from bar to bedroom by pairing cocktails with sexy stories and vignette photography.
Cocktails with a Tryst: An Affair with Mixology and Seduction
Cocktails with a Tryst: An Affair with Mixology and Seduction invites adventurous lovers to share steamy sexual fantasies and thirst quenching drinks. Sensual encounters are the indulgent quickies many fantasize about. Erotic adventures stimulate desire, allowing passion to smolder throughout the busy day.
Let’s face it, we’re all busy whether it is with frustrating commutes, demanding work days, tedious to-do lists or running after toddlers. At the end of the day we’re tired. Romance let alone jaw dropping, peel the paint off the wall sex rarely makes the top of the to-do list. Opening a bottle of wine or popping the top off a beer and plopping into a recliner are more likely to happen.
Stir your desire.
Share the stories. Quench your thirst.
Cocktails with a Tryst: An Affair with Mixology and Seduction is a multi-genre erotic stories and cocktails book. It mixes the best of my creative talents; cocktail knowledge, photography, and creative writing. The book invites readers to stir their desire and quench their thirst while reading alone or while sharing with someone special.
We’ve all heard the saying, sharing is caring. This time sharing is gratifying. You can read one indulgent short story in Cocktails with a Tryst: An Affair with Mixology and Seduction in the time it takes to catch up on social media. Would you rather “like” all the adorable babies, prom photos and cute puppies, or allow desire to simmer all day and share it with a lover for an evening of passion? I vote for the desire thing, wrapped up with a silk bow and blindfold.
After things heat up, Cocktails with a Tryst is the only book you need to cool down and quench your thirst. The book pairs 25 original cocktail recipes with the 12 erotic stories. Two standard syrup recipes are included. All the recipes use easy to find ingredients and have simple step-by-step instructions. The recipes include full color photos of every drink with brief description of the drink’s flavor profile. Each short story includes a mood setting black-and-white vignette photo.
The objective of Cocktails with a Tryst: Spark your desire early, frequently and carry it with you all day. And then share it!
The Honeydew Me Daiquiri gets its light green hue from fresh honeydew melon. That is exactly where it gets its fun name, too! The flavor is fresh and fantastically light. The Honeydew Me Daiquiri is ideal for spring and summer. Or put this drink on your “Honey do” list for Valentine’s Day. The light green color makes this a nice alternative cocktail choice for St. Patrick’s Day, Mardi Gras and Easter. Another great day to keep this seasonally fresh cocktail in mind…

Jack Sparrow loved women almost as much as he loved rum. Possibly if he’d used the Love Potion #10 cocktail recipe he would have had better success.
