Friday Book Drinks: Southern Sass

Inspired by a recent trip to the library in which I finally scored a copy of Rachel Hawkins' Rebel Belle, this week's Friday Book Drinks is all about pearls, girls, and glam.


This is one I haven't personally read yet, but now that I've got a copy, I'm going to start as soon as possible. From what I gather from descriptions, it's the story of a classic Southern Belle (yes, they're still around) who, at a dance, runs into the whole issue that she's a guardian with powers, and she's been charged to protect the guy she hates most in school. Well, of course things happen, and I anticipate some romantic-y things going on shortly afterward.

To celebrate, here's the Southern Belle-ini! (Cute name, right?) To make it (and by it, I mean SIX servings. So be prepared to have some friends over), you'll need the following:

1 can frozen Piña Colada Mix 
½ cup light rum
½ cup peach rum
1 1/2 cup raspberries
1/3 cup lemon juice
5 cups of ice
6 raspberries for garnishes
6 mint sprigs for garnishes 
(I always include the garnishes on the lists, but when I make drinks I'm WAY too lazy for that shit, so use at your own risk)

Literally, throw everything except the garnishes into a blender and mix until smooth. THAT'S IT. So easy, and if you blend til it's smooth, you should get a nice little foam on top that gives the top of the glass a light pink fluffy quality to it.

I picked this (other than its obvious cuteness and pinkness) because I can just imagine Southern Belles in dresses chilling on their porches in Savannah sipping this in the afternoon. Can't you picture it, too? Seems so perfect. You know, until they've got to get up and fight stuff and protect people.

And though I haven't read it yet, this was a quote from Goodreads I really enjoyed and got a good laugh out of it.
