DrinkWire is Liquor.com’s showcase for the best articles, recipes and reviews from the web’s top writers and bloggers. In this post, Miss Rose's Views offers cocktails with an ode to literature.

National Book Lovers Day occurs the first Saturday in November and is the one day a year that encourages readers to relax and get lost in a good (fiction or non-fiction) book.

As we gear up to celebrate the books that take us away, pair your favorite reads with cocktails from Pinnacle Vodka!

  • Instead of wearing a Scarlett A, sip on the Scarlet Mary in a bright red hue
