Book Blogger Hop December 16th - December 22nd: Remember Gladiator? In Reality, Roman Senators Failed to Assassinate Emperor Commodus in 183 A.D.

Book Blogger Hop

Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.

This week Billy asks: What is your favorite holiday beverage to drink while you're reading?

I have a recipe for a really good homemade eggnog, complete with rum, brandy, and bourbon. I love it, but I can't drink it all that often, both because doing so would make me almost permanently tipsy and drive my blood sugar through the roof.

Although I am generally happy to drink commonly available holiday themed products like Cranberry Sprite or Cranberry Ginger Ale if they are what is on offer, the best soda I have ever had for the holidays was Reeds Spiced Apple Cider. It isn't likely to be found on most supermarket shelves - you'll probably have to seek it out at a specialty store like World Market, but it is worth the effort. The soda tastes like someone liquefied an apple pie and made it into a delicious drink, which makes it perfect for the holidays.

  1. Cranberry Sprite and Ginger Ale sounds wonderful. Love cranberry anything, though. :)

    Thanks for sharing, and have a terrific week.

    Happy Hopping!!
