Every Mystery Deserves a Mixologist!

Most mystery writers have an editor, proofreader and beta readers.

What we deserve is a mixologist… and I’m pleased to report that the Whispers serial mystery appearing in Attraction Magazine now has its very own mixologist!

Bannings LogoHistoric Banning’s Tavern in Easton, Maryland is the sponsor of Whispers and to celebrate, we all thought it would be fun to come with special cocktails that match up with the main characters in the serial.

If you have special cocktails, you need a mixologist!  So, Banning’s co-owners, Tom and Stephen went to work and the initial results are exciting… as well as delicious!

The Whispers logo inspired him to reach for the RumChata, a real cream delicacy.  To connect it to the murder mystery, he added his own secret ingredient for the “blood.”  To say, It’s to die for, isn’t too far from the truth.

Then, he thought about one of the characters and was inspired to create another tasty concoction:  the Blackberry Margarita!  Isn’t this perfect for libation for a hot summer evening… or a hot character?

Which character?  I can’t tell you whom he had in mind, because we’re going to let the readers decide!

The cocktails will be introduced at a very special Happy Hour on Tuesday, August 25th 5-7!

Readers can vote on which cocktail matches up with which character!

Results will be announced in September.

So, if you’re on the Maryland Eastern Shore in Easton, come and join the fun. I’ll be there with my co-author Cheril Thomas along with our editor Jennifer Latham and publisher Richard Slaughter of Attraction Magazine… and lots of friends and readers.

Come and raise a glass… then stay for dinner!
