Happy day 2 of the Biannual Bibliothon! I hope your reading is going well but that most importantly, you are having fun 🙂
So today’s blogging challenge is to create a bookish drink that is based on a book or character and then share its recipe, a picture of it or a picture of you drinking it. This one is hosted by the blog “Will Read for Booze” so you should definitely check them out! This was a tough one for me because I am awful at creating food/drinks that actually taste good…however I tried and that’s all that matters!
The Blue Twist
Inspired by Percy Jackson from the Percy Jackson and Olympians series by Rick Riordan
Like a slushie, it is sweet, cold but very blue. Perfect to sip on while walking around on a sizzling summer day, and will leave you wanting more…I present to you, The Blue Twist!
- 1/2 Cup of Crushed Ice
- 2-3 Drops of Blue Food Colouring
- 1 Can of 7 Up or Sprite
- 2-3 Drops of Lemon + Lime Juice
- 1 Cup
- 1 Blue Straw
This drink perfectly represents Percy Jackson because his mother is obsessed with making any drink or food she can blue. His birthday cakes are always blue, as well as the candy she brings home for them at the end of her shifts at the candy store. Including the lemon and lime juice is essential because Percy Jackson is a very sarcastic character, and it adds that bit of “jazz” to the drink.
That is all for my day 2 blogging challenge for the Biannual Bibliothon and I hope you enjoyed! I will leave a link to their Instagram and YouTube so you can check it out for any info on this readathon.
