Holiday Recipes: Apples to Pears with Tawna Fenske!



‘Tis the season for Apples to Pears Whiskey with Tawna Fenske!

I’m Tawna Fenske, USA Today bestselling author of The Fix Up (on sale now for 99¢!).

This scorching-hot romantic comedy has a sexy-geek hero (Ben) whose father is a bit of an asshat. He tries to show Ben the ropes of running the family business, which apparently involves swilling a lot of whiskey and acting like a sexist jerk.

Ben isn’t a fan of the sexism or the whiskey, though he eventually comes around to enjoying one of those (hint: It’s not the sexism!)

The beverage of choice in The Fix Up is a single-malt Scotch whiskey called Laphroiag, which has a unique smoky flavor. Not everyone’s a fan, but I happen to love the stuff. I especially love it in this cocktail that’s perfect for sipping by the fire while reading a hilarious, sexy romantic comedy (know of any?!)
Apples to Pears

  • 5 ounces Laphroaig single-malt Scotch whiskey
  • .5 ounce simple syrup
  • .5 ounce freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 ounce fresh-pressed apple juice
  • Half a pear canned in light syrup


Muddle the pear in a mixing glass (I like to include a splash of the pear juice from the can). Add all remaining ingredients and shake with ice. Double strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon twist. Bottoms up!

thefixup_updated_500-2About The Fix Up:

Uncovering this sexy geek’s charm is easy. Keeping her hands off of him is impossible.

While he may look like the love child of a movie starlet and an NFL linebacker, Ben Langley has the people skills of a half-drowned porcupine. Why socialize when there are chemistry labs and bad sci-fi flicks? If he has any hope of taking the helm as CEO of the family business, Ben needs an image makeover. Pronto.

Enter Holly Colvin, owner of First Impressions public relations and branding firm, and the woman who just saved Ben from the clutches of an over-attentive sales clerk. Holly’s rebranded hundreds of companies in her career, but she’s never rebranded a person. The guy clearly needs help, though, and she’s just the woman for the job.

With the clock ticking for them both, Holly and Ben face off over wardrobe malfunctions and business jargon that sounds a lot sexier than it should. But can Holly make Ben into the man he thinks he should be without losing the man she’s starting to love?
