Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon CHALLENGES!

Wicked Wildfire Read-A-Thon

Something Wicked This Way Comes… Challenge!

“A wildfire is quickly coming your way! What thing/s do you grab when you only have a few minutes to make it out?”
(I’ve saved any people or pets in there already!)

I need my kindle! LOL

My signed books I would grab!

All my pictures are saved on my computer so def grab this

DVDs to watch like my Buffy the complete series

My TV is actually not working right now but I would try to grab it 
I am having horrible luck with my electronics lately so maybe it's best I just replace everything anyway! 

Slake Your Thirst

 Help me create a recipe book for the Wicked Read-a-Thon

Share your favorite drink recipe* and the
 cover of your favorite/most anticipated summer read!
Have fun with this, include pictures, the recipe (so we can all try it**) and tell us about your book choice. Have you read it? Are you anxiously awaiting its release this summer? Why?

 The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life
 Releasing July 5th
Sounds like a fun book! I love books that take place during one crazy night.
When I want to have a crazy night I drink Long Island Iced Teas or Audios!
I can barely stand to drink them anymore but they get the job done! LOL

1/2 oz rum
1/2 oz tequila
1/2 oz gin
1/2 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
2 oz sweet and sour mix
2 oz 7-Up® soda

Pour all ingredients except the 7-Up into a chilled glass filled with ice cubes. Top with 7-Up and stir gently.

Long Island Ice Tea
1 part vodka
1 part tequila
1 part rum
1 part gin
1 part triple sec
1 1/2 parts sweet and sour mix

Mix ingredients together over ice in a glass. Pour into a shaker and give one brisk shake. Pour back into the glass and make sure there is a touch of fizz at the top. Garnish with lemon.

 Such a Rush
Releasing July 10th 
Read it and loved it!
In honor of Leah two drinks relating to flying and a rush!

 Flying Angel

In a shaker with ice, pour everything but grenadine and shake. Pour contents into an old fashioned glass and drip grenadine for color. Top with cherry and garnish with pineapple or orange slice.
