    Reason #489,764 that I think you’re awesome. Hot buttered rum!??! Mmmmmmmmmmm

    We made a huge batch of hot buttered rum batter the other day and froze it in ice cubes. We’ve been popping it out in mini-batches, adding rum and boiling water and sprinkling with cinnamon and voila! Yummy hot beverage. It’s my new go-to warm-up beverage. Love it. Definitely a holiday drink, though, as my version also calls for heavy whipping cream and the batter is beaten to a thick consistency before the addition of the rum and water.

    I am totally trying the Tom and Jerry mix, now, however. My butt will not thank you, but my tastebuds will!

    I have to pass on the Tom & Jerry and the Hot Buttered Rum due to the spices but I might try making my own Irish Creme. Thanks for the recipes!

    Everyday is a holiday when it comes to having a delicious beverage. I like to keep things simple. I’m a fan of Pear Vodka and 7up on the rocks in the summer. Lately, I’ve been a fan of Red Stag and Diet Coke. Also, on the rocks.

    When I’m in the mood for something fancy, my all time favorite drink is a Lemon Drop Martini. It is a perfect balance of sweet and tart when done right.

    @Cory I have a good lemon drop recipe here: http://nicemommy-evileditor.com/blog/2010/02/08/recipe-lemon-drop-martini/ and it’s even better when you make candied lemon peels, and use those as garnish, and also use the lemon-infused simple syrup that results in place of regular simple syrup when making the martini. Amazing!

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
