Normally on Tuesdays we post the recipe to the drink we are making for this week’s podcast so those of you who wish to can play along at home while you listen to us imbibe. But this week is different. While you will hear some of the ingredients of the lovely dueling drinks Delicious Aloysius and Sex in a Frock Coat on Episode Ten of The Charlie Tonic Hour, I am not giving you the recipe here. Sorry, save your tears and your supplications. I am not giving it to you. Now, you may be so disappointed by this that you appeal to Calamity Dawn, the creator of this tasty cocktail, for the recipe since I am being so cruel and withholding. I am sorry to tell you that you shall have no luck on that front either. But fear not gentle listener, you shall not be denied forever.
For tonight I am thrilled to announce that Calamity Dawn and I will be collaborating on writing a book! That is right, your eyes do not deceive you. Calamity Dawn and Ginny Tonic will be writing a book on creative mixology to be released in electronic format through the Charlie Tonic website. In this book you will find recipes for many of Calamity’s custom cocktails, including Delicious Aloysius. You will also learn about creating your own custom liquors, finding inspiration in fiction and in your friends, and how to host an unforgettable room party. Calamity and I will begin working on the book after the Steampunk Empire Symposium and plan to have it completed and ready for release by Pandoracon. We are also hoping to do a limited run of hard copies to be available for purchase and signing. So stay tuned for more updates and for sneak previews of recipes and drink recommendations. Calamity Dawn and Ginny Tonic. Two minds too delicious to be kept to ourselves any longer.
