For the NOVICE or the expert...and user friendly. Jan 24, 2010
By Jonathan Jett
This book is probably the best Sangria Book on the market to date. It offers simple step by step explanations on how to carry out the delishous recipies. And, I'll let the cat out of the bag, the restaurant that I used to bartend at used this book for its reciepies. So whether or not your a pro bottle spinning drink mixer or family person who likes hosting get togethers, the recipies in this book will make people think you are a pro because the exposions of flavors will be something they've never tasted or purchased. The sangrias were so popular we began selling them by pitchers and pitchers to go. Keep in mind, many of the reciepes require that the fruits and alcohols sit for hours or even days to allow the natrual flavors and sugars to merge, this is possibly the biggest secret to making a succesful sangria or pitcher drink so plan ahead. Trust me these recipies are tastbud approved!

The blueberry pomegranate recipe is worth the price of the whole book Feb 06, 2009
By WestCoastBecky I heard the author talk about this book on the radio a long time ago. I finally picked up a copy. Thumbing through this book made me so thirsty I couldn't stand it. It's winter...only blueberries are in season right now. I picked up all the necessary ingredients for the blueberry pomegranate sangria and mixed it up in a plastic pitcher (I didn't have a glass or ceramic one at the time). I didn't wait for it to rest and blend like I was supposed to. Just poured myself a glass right away. Best.Sangria.Ever. My boyfriend was having a flavored vodka tasting party at the time. I waltzed in with my sangria, and it was a huge hit!

Perfect Cocktail Book Jun 08, 2009
By EYS I really enjoy this cocktail book. The author Kim Haasarud has written three other books in the same series and they all have very tasty and creative drink recipes. The Sangria and Pitcher drinks offers perfect cocktail ideas for those summer night get-togethers with friends. The book is beautifully laid out, with gorgeous pictures accompanying the cocktails. The author provides easy to follow recipes to prepare simple syrup and fresh sour used in many of the cocktails in this book. A must have in your cocktail collection!

YUMMY!!! Feb 03, 2013
By D. Decker
Only have tried one, the Blueberry/Pomegranate Sangria, it was delicious and enjoyed by all who drank it. Many of the recipes sound wonderful - I was originally skeptical about using cognac in a sangria, but the flavors blended so well that it did not take over the essence of the fruit.

Highly recommend!! May 02, 2011
By MIMZEVA I received this book as a birthday gift a year ago, and now count it as one of my best birthday gifts ever. My husband and I enjoy picking a new recipe to try on the weekend, and then look forward to making the recipe all week. This book is extremely easy to use and fun to look at. Plus, every recipe I've tried (and I've tried quite a few) has been absolutely delicious and unique.
Now, whenever we are invited to a party or barbeque, our friends ask us to bring the sangria! And we are more than happy to oblige.
