Chappy Hour: The Undertaker + Heaven's Thieves

November 22, 2016 by Tan Light

ALU resident mixologist Tan Light comes up with a one-two punch of espresso and Kahlua, echoing the punches of "Come in. Nothing There. / Come in. Nothing." of Tan's favourite poem in Sue Sinclair's latest collection,  Heaven's Thieves (Brick Books).

My favourite poem in this selection is "How to be Hungry," in which an old man sits, his cold tea and honey abandoned on his side table. While I couldn’t in good conscience fix a cocktail with cold tea and old honey, this chilled espresso drink delivers a similar punch of sweet caffeine.

Did that Undertaker cocktail perk you up, or what? Hopefully enough to read the longer excerpt of the arresting  Heaven's Thieves.
