However, I couldn't actually find very *many* covers with alcoholic drinks on them that I liked. So I expanded a bit and included a couple covers that just had drinks in general.
And now, since I don't have anything more to say about alcohol, I'm just going to get on with the covers :-P
Cover Characteristics is a weekly meme hosted at Sugar & Snark. This week’s topic is:
Books Covers featuring Alcoholic Beverages
Speakeasy by Suzey Ingold
This one is actually not a fantasy book, but I’ve always been fascinated by the Prohibition Era which means the title appeals to me, and I like the art.
Sparkled by Gina LaManna
Also not a fantasy, but pretty in a really minimalistic way.
Elfin Series by Quinn Loftis
Ok this probably isn’t alcoholic, but, as I said, I couldn’t quite find enough for the topic. And they do say your should never eat or drink anything in Faery, which means the drink isn’t just some innocent fruit punch, so that, I don’t know, counts for something, right?
Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst
This isn’t alcoholic either—in fact I’m pretty sure it’s blood—but blood is basically alcohol to vampires, right? Actually, I just read a book in which the vampire literally did get drunk every time he fed. So ha.
Trailer Park Fae by Lilith Saintcrow
Is anyone surprised by this choice? Anyone? There are some beer cans near the bottom, so it counts, dammit. This was a hard topic, and you know I can’t resist using this cover since it’s basically my favorite of all-time ever. MY OBSESSION IS PERFECTLY HEALTHY. WHO ASKED YOU, ANYWAY? I didn’t choose it as my favorite for this though since it’s not very alcohol-y.
A Criminal Magic by Lee Kelly
So I think that’s actually magic in the glass, not alcohol, but the magic is like alcohol… I think? Whatever. It’s still a martini glass.
Prim & Proper by Jordan K. Rose
I just adore the art style on this cover.
Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge by Paul Krueger
A dark and mysterious cover with a great font.
Fairy on the Rocks by Katharine Sadler
I actually don’t love this one since I feel it looks a bit unprofessional, but the sparkles look magical.
Down with the Shine by Kate Karyus Quinn
I just LOVE how glowy and pretty and magical this one looks!
