Friday Book Drinks: You Don't Remember?

Welcome to a special holiday installment of Friday Book Drinks! This is a regular feature I created where I pair cocktails with books I'm reading because, you know, drinks are great! See more of my Friday Book Drinks posts.

It's been a really long time since I've done one of these posts, but I wanted to get back into it with a new release from next week, and I have a special giveaway if you stick here until the end!
This week I have paired Liana Liu's The Memory Key with a Long Island Iced Tea! You may ask why? Seems like a weird pairing. The Memory Key is about a time in the near future when a form of Alzheimer's has affected almost everyone on the planet. It's a strain called Verget's, and scientists have come up with a key that is implanted in people's brains to load their memories onto so they don't forget about their own lives.

Obviously LITs are the drink of all drinks, and if you have too many, you can forget about everything you've done that night! (See what I did there?) This recipe is pretty cool because it spices it up with some homemade cola syrup, but if you're lazy like me, you can just go buy some cola syrup and add it in anyway.

And in all seriousness, even though I made light of the book and drink, I think it's great that books like The Memory Key are pulling issues we have in today's health to bring them to light and raise awareness about what it's like to be affected by this disease.
And as a thank-you for sticking around through this post, I have an ARC of The Memory Key, which is published on March 3, to give away to a lucky US reader! Just fill out the form below!
