It's Enough to Make You Drink

post by Michelle Griep

It's snowy. It's cold. And I'm slugging back a hot mug of ginger tea. Yeah, it's good, but my real favorite beverage of choice? Wow. That's a tough call. I'm going to go with a pot of French press crafted Burundi or Peru with a splash of heavy whipping cream. Nectar of the gods, I say.

But a lot of other writers tended to lean toward the hooch. Here is a list of some famous authors and their beverage of choice . . .

I love my Keurig. It's fast and easy and I can get a ton of coffees in different flavors. My favorite ones are coffee with chocolate, of course.
