Today on A bookish Christmas I will be showing you some bookish recipes some are a bit Christmas oriented and some well not so much but there's no restrictions to what you're allowed to eat at Christmas as far as I know it doesn't have to be only gingerbread, turkey or toutiere (meat pie) eggnog ect.... Whatever the traditional thing is to eat around this time with your family or culture bookish recipes won't hurt :). So here's some bookish recipes!
A recipe for Butterbeer from the harrypotter series.
Ok this one isn't very Christmasy but wizards have butterbeer during Christmas time right? Plus if it tastes anything like the butterbeer I tasted at universal studios in orlando its just so very good! I haven;t personally tried this recipe but it looks to me like it would taste the same at the end of the page on the website there's more links for Harry Potter recipes by the same person here's the Link for the Butterbeer recipe .

Next off and this one is Christmas related The Polar Express hot chocolate. The polar express is written by Chris Van Allsburg published in 1985 by Houghton Mifflin.
Of course they have fairly recently made it into a movie and there is a hot chocalte scene and the hot chocolate in scene definitely looks good heres a video clip just as a reminder.
So a recipe for polar express hot chocolate here is the link.
Next up some literary drink.
Te-quil-la (to kill a mockingbird) mocking bird. Get it tequila the drink my English teacher made this joke when we where reading the book in class.Most people just rolled there eyes like really Monsieur (i go to a french school) Personally I thought it was clever and they actually do have a tequila based on To Kill a Mockingbird I'm still too young to drink alcohol which I don't mind since I'm not particularly excited to be able to. But I know the holiday seasons for those who drink alcohol are a season where almost every party is probable going to have some.So why not get creative and inspire yourself on these bookish alcoholic drinks. On this site is 10 alcoholic recipes based on classic books well most of them I'm not sure everyone would call Bridget Jones diary a classic but Moby Dick by Herman Melville and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee are definitely some classics and yes they got a drink for both those books here is the link and below here an example of a recipe you can find on the link.
To finish this post off if you want some more book inspired recipes these one from YA books go check out these two links below that will bring you to the epic reads site where they have some Young adult book inspired recipes. The first link is to a post that is a mixture of various YA recipes and the other link will bring you to 3 great posts on 3 individual bookish recipes one specifically for Christmas cookies the other too just plain recipes.But there based on books.
This is the last A Bookish Christmas post. I hope you all enjoyed them. Since this is the last A Bookish Christmas post I'm going to mention a few thing, today is the 22nd of December and there is but 2 days until Christmas because of that I will not be posting anything till after the holidays.It is Because I am very busy up until Christmas day and I will be leaving shortly after Christmas day for a mini vacation and I am not sure if I will be able to find internet access where I will be going. The good news is I will lots of time to read (which is awesome) and that means there should be a steady stream of reviews after Christmas break which is also a good thing.Usually when someone starts with the good news is there's bad news but im not sure there is in this case everyone is busy during Christmas time and after there will be a plenty reviews on the blog and of course Starting the week write (right) will also be starting back up after the christmas holidays.So I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas time whether you celebrate it or not and also a very happy new year.
Thanks for Reading
