Love the Format!

One Drink Book Club does a great job of being thorough and thoughtful without giving away major parts of some great books. The host asks good questions and the cocktail idea is a fun twist! Highly recommend this podcast!

Awesome podcast

Super interesting conversations! Really makes you want to get into a lot of these books. The cocktail pairing is a unique way to bring the books to life. I love that they give a great overview of the plots but don’t give too much away. Definitely worth the listen!
