In Ghost Train to New Orleans (Out March 4!) I have our hero, Zoe, going to a coterie-run bar and getting a “Captain Spaulding.” It has gin and (possibly) demon blood. That’s all I said about it.
Then I thought, what if people could try to make their own Captain Spauldings? So I’m doing a drink contest- send me a recipe at mightymur at gmail.com. Ideally it can include gin and something red, but you can get more creative if you like.
I’ll be doing videos this month*, doing taste tests of these drinks. I’ll have a couple of prize packs** available for the best ones. So send in your recipes and I’ll get mixing!
* I hope next weekend at Boskone to do some taste tests with other authors, fans, etc. Find me at the bar if you’re feeling adventurous!
** I have copies of Shambling Guide, Ghost Train, and more necklaces from Surly Amy to give away!
