Friday Feast ~ Strawberry Lemonade Slush

IMG_3235To continue the celebration of my new book DRAGON KNIGHT’S AXE, I wanted to have a drink to toast my couple ~ Alastair and Fiona. This cool, refreshing beverage is one I know Fiona will enjoy. However, I believe Alastair would prefer to have his mead.

In addition, I had the lovely opportunity to visit Kimi’s Medieval Author Blog. I surprised her by showing up with Alastair MacKay! For a chance to win a signed print copy of DRAGON KNIGHT’S AXE and swag (Alastair’s suggestion), come on over and leave a comment. One winner will be chosen by Alastair on Tuesday (July 7th) morning.

  1. Sounds delicious. I love strawberries in all forms: fresh, in ice cream, juice.
    Enjoy the lemonade slush and Happy Independence Day, Mary!

    • Carmen, many years ago I grew strawberries, but they didn’t last long. As soon as the fruit appeared on the plants, birds arrived to feast on them. We’re fortunate that we can purchase them year-round.

      Thanks so much! 🙂
