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!"

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.
