I’m not much of a cook – just ask anyone in my family, and they would agree! So instead of food, I’m going to post two cocktails that I’m considering for my New Year’s Day party. Both of these drinks were inspired by one of my scenes in Sins of Lust – my paranormal m/m romance.
Now angels can’t hold Earth liquor too well, and Uri-el is no exception. And, I’m giving away a scene here so if you don’t want to read further… There’s a scene where Uri is at a bar and of course, being an otherworldly creature, the bartender is enamored with him. He insist on making him a drink called Angel Face. Yes, it’s really a cocktail I found on the Internet. Now Izar is irritated that the bartender can’t seem to take his eyes off of Uri and mutters that the appropriate drink for Uri is really a Devilish Daiquiri!
Here are the recipes for both of these wonderful concoctions!
(drink recipe from Diffords Guide: http://www.diffordsguide.com/cocktails/recipe/521/angel-face)
1 shot of dry gin
1 shot of calvados
1 shot of apricot brandy liqueur
Best glass to use: Martini glass and garnish with a very thin apples slice.
Hot Devilish Daquiri
(recipe from Drinks Mixer: http://www.drinksmixer.com/drink4333.html)
1 1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar 2 cinnamon sticks
8 whole cloves
6 oz frozen lemonade concentrate
6 oz frozen limeade concentrate
1/2 cup light rum
In 2 qt. microproof casserole, combine hot water, sugar, spices, and concentrated juices. Stir, then cook on HI 5-6 minutes or until mixture boils. Heat rum in microproof container on HI for 30 seconds. Ignite and pour over hot beverage. Ladle into punch cups for serving.
It’d be pretty cool to light the punch bowl on fire but be careful!
Thou shall not kill.
For archangel Razi-el, he had no choice. He would break God’s commandment again if it were to save Uri-el from a demon’s talons. Yet even God’s most trusted archangel cannot avoid punishment. No longer Razi-el, he is now Izar, a Protector sworn to kill for the angels.
When a Protector kills an angel, Izar is summoned to work alongside Uri-el to capture the killer. Izar is shocked when his bloodlust spikes hot for the archangel. He knows better than to go after forbidden fruit. Refusing to give in to temptation, he ignores his body’s tempestuous arousal for Uri-el until a heated argument turns his blood into molten lust.
As they rush to find the killer, their passion plays into the demon’s plan. Izar will have to make a choice between life and death if he is to save Uri-el again.
