Ep 025: Is This a Kissing Book? (Writing Sex Scenes)
Ooh la la! D.C. and Avery discuss the salacious topic of writing sex scenes. We discuss how we try to avoid the cringe zone, as well as sharing examples with a lot of laughs and a teensy bit of embarrassment .
The Goldfinch, by Donna Tartt
I Give You My Body, by Diana Gabaldon
“Sex on the Beach” Fancy Martini
The standard Sex-on-the-Beach recipe is vodka, cranberry juice, orange juice, and peach schnapps. So we fancied it up with cranberry gin, apricot liqueur instead of peach, and bergamot liqueur instead of orange.
2oz Koval Cranberry Gin
1oz Apricot Liqueur
1oz Italicus Bergamot Liqueur
Stir all in mixing glass with ice until well chilled
Strain into chilled martini or coupe glass
Garnish with two Luxardo cherries on a cocktail pick.
