This week I wanted to pick something I'd already read and reviewed instead of previewing to what I am currently reading. And since a ton of my friends have just begun their new school year (undergrad or grad school), I thought I would feature a book that takes place at college and a very college-y drink to go with it!
I absolutely LOVED Roomies. It's got a diverse cast of characters, which I haven't found too often yet in YA. It's got realistic situations, stories that remind us all how scary our freshman roommate experience was in college. It's got new friends, old friends, friends falling out, and new romances. There are so many good things to say, but let's move on to the drink!
Grab a big giant bowl because this is a punch-style drink. Pour in the following:
12 oz of cherry soda (7-UP has a great one)
12 oz tequila
12 oz CoronaMix these all up and then add to the bowl 12 oz. frozen limeade concentrate. Once you've mixed this in, it should sort of look like a punch with a little froth on top. Serve in mason jars for the ultimate college look with a lime wedge and a maraschino cherry for a little pop of extra flavor.
It's perfect for the winding-down summer and a big last hoorah before we'll have to start looking at warmer drinks because, you know, it's cold outside.
What do you think? Have you read the book? Tried the drink? Let me know in the comments!
