Happy Hour: Ragin’ Cajun
Hey there, Babes!
I was SO excited to receive my Otterly Irresistible book box from Erin Nicholas a couple weeks ago! If you were lucky enough to get one, you know what I mean! I think they’re even still available if you want an adorable stuffed otter named Gus, a cute mug, the signed paperback and more goodies!
Well, I wasted no time, cracking that puppy open and getting to know grumpy wildlife veterinarian, Griffin and the cheerful, designer-clad Charlotte “Charlie” who’s his new marketing consultant.
On top of loving this read, it makes me long for a trip to Louisiana—which will always be near and dear to my heart because it’s the wonderful state where I first met our Boss Babe, Melissa!
And, of course, you know me… I need a drink in hand while I’m reading! Something spicy since we’re way down in Louisiana!
I chose to go big with this Ragin’ Cajun Shooter! Spicy and tart… I love this shot! And, it pairs really well with shrimp cocktail, my friends!
~ 1 oz silver tequila
~ 2 oz lemonade
~ 4 dashes of green hot sauce
~ Salt & smoked paprika (for the rim)
- Mix together the salt and smoked paprika on a plate. Wet the rim of your shot glass with a damp paper towel and dip it in the salt mixture.
- Add the tequila, lemonade, and hot sauce into a shaker and shake over ice.
- Pour and serve in your shot glass!
Read an excerpt from OTTERLY IRRISTISTIBLE – here!
Broody wildlife veterinarian Griffin Foster is done. Done trying to save the world. Done getting attached. He’s been fired twice for standing his ground and now he’s going to be content–by God–in small-town Louisiana, in a small veterinary practice, where there will only be small problems.
Quiet and boring, though? Um, no. He’s been adopted by a loud, crazy Cajun family with a tiny petting zoo for him to care for. Hey, it’s not endangered tigers at a nationally renowned zoo, but a family of otters–and all the gumbo he can eat–isn’t a bad deal.
Until she shows up. Again.
The sunny, gorgeous optimist who stole his heart–and his favorite shirt–two months ago. Who clearly hasn’t heard the word “no” enough in her life. And who is the first woman to put even a tiny crack in his don’t-get-attached wall.
Charlotte “Charlie” Landry is the new marketing consultant for the family swamp-boat tour company and petting zoo. It might not have been her plan, but she is all in, ready to grow the business. Whether the hot, grumpy vet likes it or not.
Worse, sparring with his unforgettable one-night stand is more fun than he’s had in a long time.
But watching wears-designer-dresses Charlie find her dream job amongst a bunch of goats, alpacas, and otters is a surprise.
And her helping him find his passion again is…well, irresistible.
