Cocktails, But Hold the Tails: “Begin Again, Again” by Eve Dangerfield

Hi friends! On this episode, we discuss “Begin Again, Again” by Eve Dangerfield. This is the first book we’ve recapped that explicitly exists in a post (or let’s be honest, during) COVID world. The pandemic looms pretty large over this story of a recently sober former podcaster who falls for a onetime professional athlete. And yet, this is one of the sexiest books we’ve read this year, while being relatable and beautifully optimistic. Spoilers ahead.

Stuff we mentioned:

Liz’s Lazy Fire Cider 1 packet instant ginger tea. Recommend Pocas Honey Ginger Tea Original

1 frozen garlic cube

1 tablespoon of honey

Splash of lemon juice

Dash of cayenne pepper

Dash of turmeric

1 cup of hot water

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Combine all ingredients and slowly stir in hot water. Sip slowly. The ginger tea is sweet on its own so you might not need the honey.

Spiced Simple Syrup
