I've seen this book offered for awhile, and because the subject seemed outdated I hesitated before finally selecting to review it. Wine cocktails seem to be from a forgotten era while the cover is reminiscent of the 1970's. However, I've read and enjoyed the concoctions within A.J. Rathbun's Dark Spirits so I decided to be adventurous.

Wine Cocktails is a 96 page book which provides 50 recipes using wine as a major ingredient. Once past the introductions and Wine Cocktail Basics, four chapters of enticing photos and tempting recipes follow then ends with a measurement equivalent chart. The recipe chapters cover reds and rosés, white wine, bubbly, and after dinner drinks. Recipes included well known cocktails such as Sangria and the Kir Royale, as well as lesser known libations like the Gong and Cabernet Crusta. Each recipe begins with a brief paragraph about the cocktail and is typically followed by a quote, notation, or both.

After thumbing through this book, I've determined I'm a bit of a wine snob. White wine seems suitable for mixing, while blending delicious reds and my beloved port into cocktails seem sacrilege. The images are beautifully photographed using 70s style props and are reminiscent of those found in gourmet magazines such as Bon Appétit. I'm not only faced with apprehensions of mixing wine cocktails, but these images make me wonder if I'm being asked to revive a long forgotten tradition. Some of the recipes are noted to come from books printed as far back as the mid 1800's, or more recently from the 40s and 50s. Perhaps this is A.J.

This review is for A. J. Rathbun's Wine Cocktails: 50 Stylish Sippers That Show Off Your Reds, Whites, and Roses (part of the 50 Series). The recipes in this book are easy to interpret, clearly presented, and accompanied by gorgeous color photos of the final product. The author also vividly describes the taste of the cocktail, almost to the point that the reader can almost taste it! This book makes me want to try every one of the recipes, which is a very good thing in my opinion.

A 96-page cookbook that reads like a magazine; credit Melissa Punch for impulse purchases as her photography stars in this lightweight mixology entry.

A.J. Rathbun and The Harvard Common Press produced two great bartending books. I wrote five-star ratings for Good Spirits: Recipes, Revelations, Refreshments, and Romance, Shaken and Served with a Twist released in 2007 and Dark Spirits: 200 Classy Concoctions Starring Bourbon, Brandy, Scotch, Whiskey, Rum and More released in 2009.

The former came in at 484 pages, a weighty tome that fit better atop a coffee table than crammed between barware. Good Spirits eschewed the standard bartending book organization by alcohol type in favor of separating the 450 recipes into 12 chapters like Unburied Treasures (great old drinks lost to the years), Pacifying a Crowd (punches) and Fresh Faces (newer creations). Rathbun splashed humor in the recipes and sidebars of obscure facts, drink-related prose and bar talk.

Good Spirits won the 2008 Food Photography and Styling Category from the International Association of Culinary Professionals, recognizing the mouth-watering work of photographer Melissa Punch and food stylist Brian Preston-Campbell.

I never thought about doing much with wine, other than pouring it into my glass and letting it breathe. I am not a wine expert by any means but there were many fun and tasty wine cocktails in this book. The recipes range from complex to simple. I recommend the vanilla-pear mimosa - (or make it a mom-osa which is all I can drink right about now) - delish!

4 stars because I wish that less recipes mixed with other alcohol. We all know what happens when you drink wine all night and then go out and have some tequila shots. So - why do I want to mix the two in a cocktail?

I've tried my non-bar-tending skills on several concoctions in this book. Thankfully not all the recipes - cuz that would mean I was a lush. But for a patio party or a special holiday morning soaking up sun rays, these are pretty good bevies.

The Reds section uses anything from Merlot to dry Sherry, Cabernet Sauvignon to dry rose', and Chianti. The Aloha punch's tropical fruitiness is great for a party but I kinda disagree with the Bordeaux Cup. The author says "This is a nice summer beverage for evening parties." But our late April evening gathering thought it was more appropriate for Christmas time with its taste of cloves, cinnamon, and allspice.

The Whites uses Savignon Blanc, Riesling, Moselle, Sancerre, Chablis, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, and one sparkling wine. This section proved a little harder for me to emulate as I'm located in one of the states where you can only buy what the state liquor stores has hanging around and some of the suggested wines proved impossible for me to get a hold of so I was left using the most standard types. I would definitely suggest the Loire Lemonade even though i couldn't get my hands on any Sancerre.The Muskrat is good but you'll never get that "Muskrat Love" song out of your head,so beware!

The Bounteous Bubbly was my favorite section since I'm a sucker for Champagne. This category can also save you a few bucks by using sparkling wines.The Vanilla-Pear Mimosa was good if a little too alcohol tasting for my like. ( We also tried making them with left over apricot nectar from the Muskrat's with some success) But my hands down favorite is a Kir Royale which I am now hopelessly hooked on. I liked a modified Venetian Spritz with Prosecco, I'm not drinking anything with an olive in it. Ewwww!
