Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #1

 

Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookviews.So many of the books I read have food or drinks in them, some I'd love to try, and others I'd never ever want to taste... and I thought it could be interesting and fun to share some food and / or drink quotes...  If you want to participate, you can grab my logo if you'd like, or you can make your own, but please link back to me in your own post. My magnificent banner is made by Silvia @ Darkest Sins, and I love it - she really captured exactly what I want to do with this meme.

 

The idea of Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well as if it's something you think you'd like or not. Please share the title of the book it happened in, as well as the character who ate or drank the special little something you discovered between the pages of a good read. Please link up beneath, and visit other bloggers who are participating in Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts as well.

 

For this very first Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, I want to share a great-sounding Martini Mac made in Burned by Karen Marie Moning. I would really like to try this drink, and it would be even better if Mac would make it for me ;) At the same time, I think the fact that Mac was doing something productive and feeling good about herself in this scene is partly why I'd like for her  to prepare my drink. The first paragraph in my quote is the actual bartender messing up a drink, then Mac steps in to make it yummy:

He just served a smoked martini that had begun promisingly, with gin and a dash of single malt Scotch - then apparently forgot what he was doing and added vermouth, and insult to injury, an olive, pimento intact, instead of a lemon twist.

I pull the drain on the filthy water, rummage beneath the bar for clean towels, wash my hands, grab a chilled glass and stir a perfectly proportioned smoked martini.

Do you have drink or some food to share from a recent read? Thanks for stopping by today, don't forget to link up :)

 

Edit: the link doesn't work here, but you can either just leave a comment or stop by my blog if you want to participate :)
