Tomorrow is National Book Lovers’ Day, so to celebrate I thought it would be fun to share a special roundup of book-themed drinks. 🙂

Why drinks, you ask? Well, I figured drink recipes are something quick and easy you can throw together on a whim, which is important for a holiday like this (one that lands on a weekday and is the sort that some people don’t hear about until the last minute). After all, just because you haven’t got time to run to the store doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to toast your love of books, right? 😉

The recipes listed here include cocktails, nonalcoholic punch, hot chocolate, and even Earl Grey lattes. So we’ve got something for everyone—whether you wanna party it up with an Edgar Allan Poe cocktail or get cozy with some of the White Witch’s hot chocolate.

Cheers, and happy Book Lovers’ Day! 🙂


7 Drink Recipes for National Book Lovers’ Day


The Raven: An Edgar Allan Poe Cocktail

This darkly sweet cocktail features pomegranate juice, blackberries, mint, and rum.



Siren Notes on the Rocks: Basil Music Note Crackers with Tropical Hurricane Cocktails

Strawberries, basil, coconut, and vodka? Yes, please!



French Hot Chocolate from The Three Musketeers

heavy cream + intense dark chocolate + French roast coffee = the richest, most luxurious hot chocolate you will ever drink



Sugar Plum Punch from The Nutcracker

This sparkling nonalcoholic punch combines the sweetness of white grapes and the tartness of cranberries with a bit of lime.



The Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

This bright blue Gargle Blaster is inspired by the cocktail of the same name from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. It’s a bit less potent than the one in the book but every bit as delicious!



London Fog Lattes from Sherlock Holmes

An Earl Grey latte is easy to make and the perfect teatime beverage.




The Witch’s Hot Chocolate from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

This delicious hot chocolate has a shot of Bailey’s to keep things fun!
