Megan Riley, the sweet (but also spicy!) main character in Mary Firmin’s “Deadly Pleasures” is a recovering alcoholic and her battle with the booze is constant through the book.

How many gals are trying to watch their weight (or over did it the night before) but the pressure (temptation) is put on? Sunday football comes around, and everyone is gathered at your local Irish pub, but you just want to play to cool for the day.

Here are five good girl drinks with some bad boy names, so no one will know you’ll taking it easy on the witch’s brew.

(Don’t worry, Shirley Temple and Roy Rodgers were not invited to this party.)

    Looks really interesting!! Going to try some of these out!! Thanks!

  3. I can’t stand the taste of alcohol, so these sound good! (The Rebecca sounds especially awesome! :O )

    • Yes, and I love when drinks are like little meals in a glass. Love the flavor! Let me know if you try any of these and what you think! xo

      • Agreed! 😀 We have just one bar in town and it’s an Irish pub, so I’m not entirely sure they’ll have the stuff to make this, but I’ll attempt the next time I go! 😛

  4. I’m printing this out and putting it in my purse now! These will come in handy when I’m the designated driver!
