Book Lovers' Night In
Cozy up with a good read and a custom cocktail inspired by authors from Colorado.
The Rally has teamed up with local Denver bookstore Tattered Cover to create a book lover’s dream night in—three staff-pick selections all written by Colorado authors, each paired with a custom cocktail inspired by the book and handcrafted by our Rally Bartenders.
Learn more about each of the pairings below and make your selection after you've booked your stay with us!
“Mixed Company" by Jenny Shank
Cocktail pairing: Denver Sunshine
Hailing from The Mile High City, Jenny Shank shares a series of fictional stories about the connections between Denverites and forges fiction out of the sparks that fly when diverse people encounter one another. Characters find their initial perceptions and ideas overturned in these stories laced with humor, heart, and grit. The Denver Sunshine, our bartenders’ twist on a Long Island Iced Tea with raspberry and lemon, is a bright, welcoming mix of flavors—just like the range of unique people you’ll discover in Denver.
“White Trash Warlock" by David R. Slayton
Cocktail pairing: Supernatural Spritz
Immerse yourself in the magical world of Adam Binder, David R. Slayton’s powerful protagonist who offers a fresh take on the world of fantasy that is dark, funny and full of devious twists that lead Binder to tackle Denver's otherworldly spirits. Paired with our Supernatural Spritz, you can create some magic of your own when you add the not-so-secret purple potion (Butterfly Pea Tea) and club soda to your glass of Cocchi Americano, St. Germaine, lemon juice and simple syrup.
"The Neighbor's Secret" by L. Allison Heller
Cocktail pairing: The Cottonwood Sangria
The fictional community of Cottonwood is full of nosy neighbors, and when things start getting mysterious and salacious secrets start unraveling, their cozy cul-de-sac starts looking a lot more like the twisty murder mysteries the local book club reads for their monthly meetings. L. Allison Heller’s Colorado-based suspenseful—yet equally funny—thriller is a perfect match for “Big Little Lies” fans, and only made more delicious with The Cottonwood Sangria, a fizzy red wine sangria that will keep your excitement buzzing as you breeze through the pages.
