Writing Prompt 2/11/2010: Adult Beverage Prompt

By Marilyn Friedman

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, one of my favorite holidays (I’m a sucker for too much candy and romance)! So I’ve created a writing prompt that’s sure to help you get in the Valentine’s Day mood.

But before I get to that–don’t forget that Writing Pad has some wonderful classes in February. All classes include Adel Aschenbrener’s amazing desserts or brunch tasting plates (what a treat!).

Mine your relationships and crushes gone wrong for unforgettable material, and learn how to write about fantastic conflicts at Tim Grierson’s Anti-Valentine’s Day Class! Get that writing project or just your writing practice flowing like molten chocolate in So You Want To Be A Writer on Wed. nights with Aaron Henne. Details are here:

Call 323-333-2954 to sign up before the classes are full!
Writing Prompt: Make a list of three of your favorite adult beverages. Pick one and add a sensory detail to it (smell, taste, touch, sight, sound). Then write about it for ten minutes. If you’re not a drinker, then write a recipe for the ideal Valentine’s Day. Check out Adel’s recipe this month for inspiration. Post your story in the comments!

Also, the picture above is The St-Germain Cocktail. St-Germain is an elderflower liquor that comes in a beautiful bottle. It has a light, slightly sweet taste to it. Here’s the recipe for that cocktail:

1.5 Parts St-Germain
2 Parts Champagne (even Freixinet or Prosecco works well)
2 Parts Club Soda or Sparkling Water

Stir ingredients, garnish with a lemon twist. Enjoy!
