I just read this author's other book, her memoir and personal journey to becoming a wine sommelier, WINE GIRL, and I loved it so much that I immediately checked out her backlist. This book happened to be on sale and since rose is one of my favorite types of wines, I immediately snapped it up. DRINK PINK is a history of roses, and it also talks about its origins in terms of both manufacturing and popularity. It's by no means exhaustive, though; this is an overview more than anything.
Originally I was going to give this a three but I'm ramping it up to a four because of the AMAZING recipes in the back for everything from cocktails to entrees. The only thing better than drinking wine is cooking amazing food with wine, and some of the recipes are to die for. I never thought of mixing rose with gin but, um, in retrospect? Totally obvs.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves wine, and especially rose wine. It's nothing mind-blowing but it would make for a fun coffee table book or gift and the recipes, again, look awesome.
3.5 out of 5 stars
