From the Inside Flap

Perfect for casual entertaining, fruity sangrias and punches are cool, refreshing, and just plain fun to drink. They're creative, informal, and best of all they're simple to make, since you can mix a party's worth in a pitcher and don't have to worry about getting the proportions exactly right.

In this beautiful little book, Kim Haasarud, the Liquid Chef, gives you 101 different ways to get the party rolling with sangria or punch. You'll find recipes for classics such as Spanish Sangria, Singapore Sling, and Spiced Winter Cider, to name just a few. But you'll also discover lots of delicious contemporary libations that are guaranteed party pleasers, such as White Peach Sangria and Watermelon Yuzu Punch. And for special occasions, try one of Kim's themed drinks, like a Superbowl Sangria for the big game or a Pink Petal Punch "bridal bowl" for a wedding shower.

So invite some friends, slice some fruit, and pull out a pitcher. With the sensational choices for sangrias and punches in this book, party-perfect drinks are easier than ever.

From the Back Cover

"Welcome to the wonderful world of sangrias and punches, names that conjure up good times with great friends. Go get some wine, hit the local produce market, grab a few spirits and ice, and have at it. Enjoy!"
—From 101 Sangrias & Pitcher Drinks

More About the Author

Kim Haasarud is a James Beard-honored mixologist, author, and beverage consultant. She conceives her signature cocktails much as Alice Waters would create a specialty dish, taking inspiration from market-fresh, high quality ingredients. "Cocktails, like food, should be culinary experiences," says Haasarud. "It is about combining ingredients to create a sensation on the palate and entice all the senses with a combination of flavors, textures, aromas, and garnishes."

You won't find the standard Cosmopolitan or mix-based Margarita on Haasarud's ever-changing bar card. Instead, depending on the occasion or the season, she might shake up Martini infusing teas with fresh muddled fruits, or concoct a Margarita with ripe kumquats or a combination of kiwis and fresh herbs.

Like many of her peers, Haasarud bartended her way through college. But what was just a job for most became a creative outlet for her keen sense of taste. It also sparked an enduring passion for building great cocktails, one that Haasarud still longed to indulge after graduating and going to work in film and television. She found her opportunity in the many industry parties she attended. "The drinks and the bars were always the same and always boring, despite very creative food and themes," says Haasarud. "I recognized that a great cocktail experience would add a rich element to each event." And thus, Haasarud's company, Liquid Architecture, was formed.

Haasarud's liquid cuisine has stirred up a huge following in both New York and Los Angeles. She works with such groups as: PF Changs, Wyndham Worldwide Hotels & Resorts, OMNI, Ritz Carlton, Mastro's, Z'Tejas, Darden, Brinker, TGI Fridays and hundreds of restaurant and wine and spirit clients have commissioned specialty cocktails by Haasarud, including Moet-Hennessy, SKYY Spirits, Future Brands, Diageo, Maxim, and Pepsico to name just a few.

Kim has been a judge on Iron Chef America, as well doing guest appearances on the "The Today Show," CBS' "Early Morning Show," "Fox & Friends Live," "Montel Williams Show", "Sonoran Living", "Your Life A to Z" and Plum TV. She has been featured on various radio programs including "Good Food" with Evan Kleiman, Martha Stewart's "Everyday Food", "Cosmo Radio" and ABC & CNN Radio syndicate. Her cocktails have been seen in hundreds of magazines and newspapers such as the Wall Street Journal, NY Times, LA Times, San Francisco Chronicle, The Washington Post, Saveur, Edible LA, Vogue, SELF, Wine Enthusiast, BRIDES, Woman's World, Lucky, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, and Associated Press to name a few. She is also REDBOOK Magazine's "Mommy Mixologist" providing recipes in a monthly column as well as an online blog.

Kim is the author of the best-selling "101... " cocktail series with Wiley & Sons (101 Margaritas , 101 Martinis , 101 Sangrias & Pitcher Drinks, 101 Champagne Cocktails, 101 Blended Drinks and 101 Mojitos and other Muddled Drinks.)

She lives with her husband Kevin, two children Holden & Maddy, and dog Emi in Phoenix, AZ.

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!

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!

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!

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.

First, the good--this book has 42 innovative and beautiful sangria recipes, along with some batched cocktails, seasonal punches, lemonades, etc. You could probably make just a few of these and justify the purchase price.

Now, the not as good--in spite of the title, 25 of the recipes are inexplicably single-serving versions of mostly standard drinks (Mai tais, singapore slings, Pimm's cup), for which recipes are already readily available. The reader is assumed to be near well-stocked stores (yuzu fruit and hard-to-find spirits). A number of the batched drinks are fussy (shake each serving in a cocktail shaker)--to me, the whole point of a pitcher drink or punch is to make it easy on the host. Some of the punch recipes are for the base, then the reader is left to guess how much alcohol to add.

Last, while there are some great tips on getting the most out of fruit, the book could have included quite a bit more on things making ice blocks or molds for cooling, containers, estimating serving sizes, how to "scale up" recipes (with large-scale recipes, it's seldom as easy as just doubling). I bought this book for a gift, but also ended up buying Cocktails for a Crowd to give with it, because Cocktails for a Crowd includes all the missing info, plus more than 40 batch cocktail and punch recipes, most of which are far easier to put together, but still delicious.

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.

This is a great gift idea. There are sangrias that are traditional & some that are unique. Really nice pictures of the drinks. So many I want to make, I don't even know where to start. I can imagine anything I make out of this book will turn out delicious. Just the book I was looking for. Can't wait to make for parties!
