NaNoWriMo Tip #25: Relax with a Literary Drink

If you are working on your National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) manuscript on Thanksgiving, you must be a little stressed out about the time limit. Relax and enjoy a literary drink today–pick from this list of 20 writers’ favorite drinks.

Here’s Raymond Chandler‘s tasty gimlet recipe from The Long Goodbye: “We sat in the corner bar at Victor’s and drank gimlets. ‘They don’t know how to make them here,’ he said. ‘What they call a gimlet is just some lime or lemon juice and gin with a dash of sugar and bitters. A real gimlet is half gin and half Rose’s Lime Juice and nothing else. It beats martinis hollow.’

This is our twenty-fifth NaNoWriMo Tip of the Day. As writers around the country join the writing marathon this month, we will share one piece of advice or writing tool to help you cope with this daunting project.
