Books have always been unanimously paired with coffee, but, books have feelings too and they too want to get paired with cooler things (read: alcohol). Here is the definitive guide of pairing book/genres with cocktails. Below are a list of easy DIY cocktails for the soul. Grab a drink and read on:

Romance:

Imagine reading ‘P.S I Love You’ with a perfectly mixed Screwdriver or Cosmopolitan! Quite mushy, isn’t it? Nothing beats romance paired with a smooth juice based cocktail. A coconut base would only add a little extra to the passion!

Mystery:

The first name that comes to mind is inevitably the Sherlock Holmes and what better a choice to pair it with than the good old Single Malt on the rocks or a classic Whiskey Sour!

Comedy:

For those of y’all who love the plain old Archie or Tinkle, the best solution would be something light. Go for a Watermelon Caprioska or a Orange/Lemon Moijto to tickle your taste buds too!

Erotica:

Feeling naughty? In the mood for some Mills & Boons or Chicken Soup? The obvious choice to keep your spirits high would be a charming Long Island Iced Tea or a Bull Frog so that the mood remains high. Ladies! Stick to Red Wine, or better yet? A Sangria – unputdownable!

Tragedy & Drama:

‘To be, or not to be: that is the question’.
Reading a Shakespeare, Hosseini or Salinger? The perfect fix in this case is definitely a Daiquiri. Add some flavours like strawberry to spruce things up!

Action:

Can’t get enough of James Bond? Then why not drink like him? Vodka Martini, shaken not stirred is the best answer although Margeritas can get the job done too!
