Toasting Books Club | October | Commonwealth by Ann Patchett | Part I
October 8, 2017
Commonwealth opens on a party. The kind of party that rises up out of nowhere when you're expecting a simple lunchtime laugh.
For my first pairing you're going to need gin. Now I know normally I would be recommending a floral gin or a spiced gin or some other magical gin, but for this you just need a classic gin. A lovely London gin.
Next you need juice. Not juice that you bought at a store. Take your favourite fruit and juice it. In Commonwealth it's California oranges but you do you. Mix it with your gin and dance the night away.
If you're looking for a non-alcoholic beverage this weekend, try an orange flavoured tea. I like the Tazo Wild Sweet Orange but pick your own favourite!
