Friday Book Drinks: College Summer Parties

Welcome to Friday Book Drinks, where I pair up a drink with a featured book for the week! This feature rotates every other week with Topics Time.

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 Corona
Mix 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!


  1. OH! You know, I read the amazon preview of Roomies which was a pretty good chunk but somehow still ahven't gotten it yet to finish it! I really liked what I read though! I REALLY want to finish it, I need to get on that! Also - this drink sounds really good! Haha I have issues with tequila though. I'm already a lightweight but I totally can't handle tequila haha. :)

    1. Haha yep! I figured tequila seemed like a very college-y drink because of the component that comes with it & it generally makes everyone super crazy!
      And it's an awesome book! Loved the dual perspectives, and it was such a realistic book.
