Celebrate Love with a Long, Wet Kiss

Celebrate Love with a Long, Wet Kiss

L&L Pre-OrderWhen Garrett James wants to impress his customers, he does so with one of his custom drink recipes. Sure, you’ll find the standard Manhattans, Sidecars, and martinis at Libations, but you’ll also find a handful of drinks you just won’t find anywhere else.

Love and Libations hits a Kindle near you on February 12th, and on that day, I’ll be celebrating with the bar’s signature drink, one of my own creation, called Seattle’s Long, Wet Kiss.

Made in honor of the only woman the owner wishes he’d had the chance to kiss. Her drink was bourbon, and her voice was honey. Knob Creek, peach liquor, lemon-sage bitters, splash of grenadine. On the rocks.

Seattle’s Long, Wet Kiss should be served over ice, preferably in pairs. In other words, find someone you love (even if it’s a friend), shake these up, and enjoy.

Seattle’s Long Wet Kiss

  • 1 oz bourbon
  • 1 oz peach liqueur
  • Lemon sage bitters
  • Splash grenadine

Mix the bourbon, peach liqueur, and lemon-sage bitters in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well. Strain into a rocks glass with or without ice and top with a splash of grenadine.

Garrett James was discharged from the army with a prosthetic leg and a Purple Heart. He found a new purpose behind the bar and has big dreams that involve his own restaurant and someone to share it with. Too bad most of the women he dates either balk at the idea of dating an amputee or can’t stand the fact that he works every night.

Lilah McKinney doesn’t have dreams. Her abusive boyfriend has systematically destroyed them, even though he’s never laid a hand on her in anger. A chance meeting with Garrett reminds her what it felt like to want something for herself. When her boyfriend snaps and nearly kills her, Garrett steps in, but he can’t stay. Lilah needs to reclaim her dreams on her own.

Fate brings them back together almost a year later, a few weeks before Valentine’s Day. Will Lilah share her dreams with Garrett? Or will her past come between them once again?

WARNING: Love and Libations contains scenes of domestic violence and abuse that may be disturbing to sensitive readers.
