Nabila Lovelace + Cold Clove Couplets

By The Poet Salon

Good to see you hear us again, boo. This week we quibble about cover letters and interview the wise and generous Nabila Lovelace as we sip on Cold Clove Couplets. NABILA LOVELACE is a born and raised Queens native, as well as a first generation American. In her debut collection, Sons of Achilles, Nabila attempts to examine the liminal space between violence and intimacy. Her work has been published or is forthcoming in Narrative Northeast, Washington Square Review, Day One, ESPNW, & Vinyl. She is co-founder of The Conversation Literary Festival.   COLD CLOVE COUPLET is a cold take on a hot toddy. Like a heroic couplet, this cocktail marches on sure feet, giving the bite of ginger, the brightness of bubbles, and the warmth of bourbon and spice. Think Moscow Mule meets the Deep South over the holidays. Perfect for when you feel the sniffles coming on, but you still want to have a cute boozy brunch with your people. Pairs splendidly with apple pastries, rambunctious readings of the Iliad, and our episode with Nabila. INGREDIENTS: Rachel’s ginger beer; 2 oz bourbon; squeeze of fresh lemon; ice; two whole cloves
