Hi, Everyone! And welcome to FLAME DRINKS! As many of you know, I’m writing a series called the Flame Series, set in the world of Five Bridges. Soon after the release of my second book, AMETHYST FLAME, the wonderful writing duo, Brenda Trim and Tami Julka, reached out to me. I loved them right away and if you want to know why, just check out their awesome blog! When I saw that they created all these amazing drinks, I asked them if they’d like to make some up for my Flame Series! They said YES!!! ***Note: these drinks are NOT meant to be lit on fire! And now, here’s what they had to say about themselves and their love of creating unique cocktails!
In their own words…
Neither Brenda nor Tami grew up writing stories or dreaming of one day being authors, but that changed when they shared a joint dream of creating a world to bring to life the stories of a group of dangerously handsome supernaturals. Now, six books later, they have more book ideas than there are hours in the day.
One of the fun aspects of Trim and Julka is that we bring our readers a new cocktail each week. When we reached out to Caris about a collaboration, she was intrigued by our blog and Facebook page, specifically the drinks we share. She asked if we would consider doing drinks for her Flame series, and after we jumped up and down, high-fiving and doing the happy dance, we immediately said yes. We went to work in the lab and learned a few things in the process.
One, lighting a drink on fire isn’t as simple as pouring 151 over a spoon. Don’t listen to anyone that says it is, we have missing eyebrows to prove it. Viniq is a product that produced the best flame.
Two, not all liquid glows, and yes, we took all of the pictures featured. Kinky Blue is awesomely electric and was our favorite.
Three, not all drinks taste good. We recommend having a taste team, and can we just say, swim team moms are lushes, but we love them. When Brenda showed up at the pool with samples, the moms all perked up. Taste-testing made sitting by the pool watching the children swim for two hours in 100 degree weather so much better!
And finally, our best advice is to do it with your best friend because you are guaranteed not only a good buzz, but tons of laughter and memories that last a lifetime.
Thank you Caris. We can’t wait to have a cocktail, or three, in person.
XOXO, Brenda and Tami
