RECIPE FOR A LITERARY COCKTAIL

Ingredients
•    1 dram of drama, with ‘legal’ spices
•    2 slices of social history, marinated for hundreds of years
•    1 dash of crime novel, with a salty taste
•    1 splash of flash fiction, with a twist in the tale
•    3 portions of short story, flavoured with poignancy, humour and nostalgia
•    1 shot of terror with the treat of the guillotine
•    1 sprig of children’s verse, sprinkled with rhyme and rhythm
•    3 dollops of poetry, fearful and funny

 Method
    Bring all ingredients together in a comfortable, well ventilated room.
    Allow each ingredient time to breathe and infuse with appreciation and advice.
    Add generous amounts of fluid when temperature rises.
    Pause for short break to allow ingredients to settle.
    Continue mixing and lace with laughter for almost 3 hours.
    Finally, add ONE cherry!

WARNING –
 The effects of this cocktail may take some time to wear off.

Thanks to Pat Young for her perfect hosting and all ‘ingredient’ contributors!
