When it comes to southern class, Reese Witherspoon is arguably the best of the best. Now, she’s sharing her life lessons from growing up in the south with all of us in her new book, “Whiskey in a Teacup,” and you can get your hands on it this fall.
Reese Witherspoon took to Instagram to share the news of the book, saying: “I’m so excited my new book, #WhiskeyInATeaCup, is coming out Sep 18th, y’all!”
The book’s title is based on a saying of Reese’s grandmother about how beauty and strength make southern women whiskey in a teacup. We may be delicate and ornamental on the outside, she said, but inside we’re strong and fiery.
The book will include all of Reese’s tips from growing up in the south and what it taught her about life and love, and “baking biscuits.” She also apparently shares her fail-proof and “slightly insane” hot-roller technique. SOLD.
Reese shared the following message about the book on its website:
“My Southern heritage informs my whole life, and spreading the gospel of Southern living has become sort of an obsession of mine. I bring the South everywhere I go with bluegrass, big holiday parties, and plenty of Dorothea’s fried chicken. It’s reflected in how I entertain, decorate my home, and make holidays special for my kids—not to mention how I talk, dance, and do my hair (in these pages, you will learn my fail-proof, only slightly insane hot-roller technique). I love sharing Dorothea’s most delicious recipes as well as my favorite Southern traditions, from midnight barn parties to backyard bridal showers, magical Christmas mornings to rollicking honkytonks. I hope you’ll see how easy it is for you to bring a little bit of the South to your home, no matter where you live. After all, there’s a Southern side to every place in the world, right?”
