Cocktails with Jane:
Cocktails of a Different Persuasion Served with a Splash of Jane Austen
by Alison Maloney
-Recipes, Jane Austen
Release date: August 1, 2017
Amazon | Goodreads

The Bath Gin Company want to show us that gin is a fun drink and, as Jane Austen is so closely associated with Bath, she is like an ideal character on which to base their own, slightly less demure, "Gin Austen." Gin is an ideal base for a whole range of cocktails that have been created for Bath Gin’s Canary Gin Bar. The cocktails, of course, all have Jane Austen associations in their names and in their character. The Darcy has great taste and an aloof charm. The Lizzy B is sparkling and zestful. The Pemberley is elegant and refined. With more than 40 different cocktail recipes concocted by drinks expert Susy Atkins and the Canary Gin Bar’s finest award-winning mixologists, Cocktails with Jane is fun, refreshing, and slightly tipsy! Includes dual measures.

=====> I would love to see the concoction matchups created for the various characters in this popular Jane Austen novel.


Mr. Darcy would like to know...

What is your favorite party beverage?


* part of Pemberley... a party (schedule)


  1. This sounds like a fun book! I have often wondered why there aren't more of these book-related recipe books out there! I hope that you enjoy this one. :)

    My WoW

  2. Great pick, this looks good :) Hope you enjoy!
    Thanks for visiting my WoW earlier.

  3. Sounds like an interesting premise for a cocktail recipe book. I'd love to know if there are any named after Mr. Collins, Lady Catherine, Mrs. Elton or Mary Crawford, to name but a few!

    My favourite party tipple is a fruit punch that my husband makes, based on vodka, rather than gin.

  4. That would be fun to see the match ups of cocktails to the characters. I'm not really a drinker, but I do love a frozen margarita on occasion.

  5. Oooh! I need to read a Jane Austen novel soon!

    Here’s my WoW!

  6. Speaking of gin, in my youth I was quite fond of the Gimlet! These days my beverages are non-alcoholic, but I wouldn't say no to a good rum slushie (orange, pineapple juices, Sprite and rum) :D

  7. I still haven't read anything by Jane Austen (I know, shame on me!), so I think I'll skip this one, but I hope you'll enjoy it once your read it. :)
