For those of you who haven’t experienced the pleasure of wine and books, wine is the perfect accessory to your reading time. Not only do you look classy, you get a good buzz going while the worlds you read come to life before your eyes. If you don’t believe me, just try it the next time you get ready to unwind with a good book.
Now the question is: which wine goes with which book? Or vice versa? To give you an idea of merging flavors with genre/tone/style, here is a list of some excellent books and the wines that would pair beautifully with them. Commençons!

In November of 2013, Quirk published Winter Cocktails, the debut cookbook from the uber talented duo of Maria Del Mar Sacasa and Tara Striano. Fast forward to 2015, and we're really thrilled to be publishing their followup. Summer Cocktails!
Full of drinks for warm sunny days and tasty snacks perfect for nibbling on the porch, it's a really fun book that will look PERFECT next to your copy of Winter Cocktails on the bookshelf. And I'm happy to give you all a little sneak peek at the book!
First, here's a note from the book's editor, Tiffany Hill (@tiffanylhill):
I know, I know, it's 12 degrees outside and snowing. Shhh, let's talk about summer. When I got my advance copy of Maria del Mar Sacasa's Summer Cocktails, I knew there was only one proper way to celebrate: with a Salty Lime Soda. It's as good as it looks in Tara Striano's gorgeous cover photo--cool, bright, and refreshing. It would be perfect at a summer cocktail party. (And it wasn't bad in February.)
My favorite part of Summer Cocktails, though, is the collection of infusions, shrubs, and syrups featuring summer fruits and herbs. Picture a cocktail made with Rhubarb Syrup straight out of your garden. That snow will start melting any day now!
The book comes out in April! For now, enjoy some pics, and enter the Rafflecopter below for a chance to win one! You can also enter by telling us about your favorite summer cocktail in the comments. Three people will win!
