I can’t think of a better way to spend a summer day than poolside with a captivating beach read and my favorite cocktail. I just have one (major) problem: I can easily stand in front of my bookshelf for the better half of the day trying to pick what book to read next. It’s basically the equivalent of scrolling through Netflix for two hours before deciding on an hour-and-a-half movie. From thrillers to new releases to heartfelt storylines overflowing with romance, I oftentimes have to close my eyes and pick a novel at random, which is not a bad way to go, I might add. So I tried something different this time around. I selected a book that pairs with my go-to summer cocktail. After all, drinks and books go hand in hand — what better way to pick my next read than by basing it off my favorite boozy drink? Join me, and find your next summer book and cocktail combo ahead!
