The Two Mikes

The Two Mikes
Ever wanted to talk with someone about a book you just read? You could just join a book group and talk about it, drink a little, veer off on tangents, work back around to the book again, and finally wrap it up by picking the next book.

But what happens when the book you just read is about about hungry zombies or a haunted house, and your Eat, Pray, Love–reading friends aren’t really into reading it, much less discussing its finer points? That’s what we’re here for. We Two Mikes will be your virtual book group for discussing new and interesting and old and half-forgotten horror books.

If you want to follow along with us, look at the next forbidden book on the table and start reading.

Make a shot of espresso
In a separate small coffee or cappuccino cup, pour two shots brandy. Toss in an almond, sugar cube and a bit of orange peel. Ignite. Careful not to burn yourself or your stuff
After it's burned for a minute or so, quench the fire with the shot of espresso. Look carefully to make sure the fire is actually out.
Serve with cream and extra sugar to taste.
