#THEKINGOFBOURBONSTREET || Weekend Drinking


Hello there, lovely reader folk!


I hope y'all regulars loved last week's #WINTERSONG post. Those of you who are new, *waves*! Be sure to check out last week's feature. Hope you LOVE this week's book and the drinks that come with it.

Every week I'll be choosing a novel and assigning caffeinated drinks to some characters in it. I'll also be telling you either where to get or how to make said drink. Think coffee shops in Seattle and Houston, or products to make delicious beverages in the comfort of your own home.

Deeeeeelicious. 



Sol DuMont 

Apple Cider Slushie. I’m a bit partial to the location, but the Wostrel Family Farms has a freaking killer apple slushie. Life altering. So, if you ever find yourself in Nebraska, I would definetly recommend you find this perfect summer treat. Spiced and fruity: it’s beyond yummy. There’s also this really awesome place that sells apple slushies at Pike Market. Definitely try theirs as well. The Pike Market place also has tastey pear slushies. Y’all, I really enjoy a good slushy.

Arianna (Rain) Barrington 

White Chocolate Mocha. Frothy and heavy and deeeelicous. This drink is one of my go to treats when I feel like spoiling myself. Which, granted, is something that is not entirely a rare occasion. In Seattle, Cherry Street Coffee House has pastries that can be paired wonderfully with said beverage of choice.

GAH. These both sound so good. What do you think? Do you like slushies? Have you read THE KING OF BOURBON STREET?

Hotel chain mogul Sol DuMont is about to learn that some of life’s biggest surprises come in deceptively small packages—namely a petite heiress named Rain who’s hell-bent on upsetting her family’s expectations—in this first book in the all new series by Thea de Salle, set against the sultry backdrop of New Orleans.

Thirty-seven-year-old Sol DuMont is a divorcee and the owner of a mid-sized hotel chain in New Orleans. Since Hurricane Katrina, his father’s death, and the decision that he and his ex-wife Maddy are far better off friends than lovers, he’s lost interest in almost everything he held dear—parties, people, and pushing limits.

All his limits.

Then Arianna Barrington checks into his hotel.

Twenty-four-year-old Arianna “Rain” Barrington could have been society’s sweetheart. Her family is moneyed, connected press darlings, and make sweeping headlines from coast to coast for reasons both good and bad. But when her mother shoves her at Charles Harwood—the obnoxious, entitled heir of Harwood Corp—to cement a billion-dollar business merger, Rain does the only thing she can think of to escape: she creates a scandal so big Harwood doesn’t want her anymore before fleeing to New Orleans for much-needed rest and relaxation.

All she wants is jazz piano, beignets, and to sail the Mississippi. What she gets is Sol DuMont, a whirlwind affair, and a hands-on education in sex, power play, and pushing limits.

All her limits.
