Drinks for Shifters: Creating Hilarious Cafe Drinks for Supernatural Creatures

Isaac, the main character in my new San Andreas Shifter book, The Omega Objection, is a bartender. Thus the meat cute and various other scenes in this book all occur inside a club named Saucebox, and the bar caters to shifters.

Oh did I have fun creating drinks for different shifter species.

Here’s an example of a few that ended up actually appearing in The Omega Objection.


Omnivore Special. Hot sake mixed with tuna water and wheat grass.


When they aren’t doing shots of high quality garum, they like Pearl of the Sea cocktails. Rum, anchovy syrup, clam juice, finished with a splash of Worcestershire sauce and a pickled onion wrapped in nori for garnish.

And now, I really am hoping you come up with other suggestions!

Yours as always,

Miss Gail

Gail’s contribution?

To all the boys who list Fight Cub as “favorite movie” and Vonnegut as “favorite author.” Sigh.

But seriously folks, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is on Netflix and it’s adorable.

    Have you done a cocktail for werewolves yet? Because I’m thinking I’d serve them a mug of beef broth with a shot of whiskey.

    Well! Brilliant ideas. How about Koval Millet Whiskey (my mother got some in Chicago and as she’s no-gluten, it’s brilliant) and something….maybe ??? Someone got any good ideas? Fish broth? My mum usually has elderflower tonic water (Fevertree only) or fruit juice with it, like she does gin. We’re all rather weird in this family…
