When I first caught a glimpse of the cover of Punch Bowls & Pitcher Drinks by Jeanne Kelley and Sarah Tenaglia I thought, oh boy, I cannot wait until spring (not that I wouldn't say this anyway as I look out the window at the ice and snow) so that I can make these delicious summertime refreshers. Having now perused the book, I see that I would have done myself a great disservice had I waited. Despite the very appealing, summery looking cover, this is a book for all seasons. Yes, summer is well represented here with the numerous recipes for punches and sangrias, not to mention the tropical and exotic drinks. There is even a chapter on drinks best served in the "Height of Summer," featuring the likes of Watermelon-Tequila Punch, served in chile salt-rimmed glasses, and Peachy Moonshine with fresh lemon juice and Amaretto liqueur, but this book is so very much more. No matter the time of year, there is a tasty offering sure to quench the seasonal thirst of even the pickiest drinker.There is a lot of eye candy in this book as a beautiful, color picture accompanies each drink recipe; I was won over by this alone. My contention has always been that cookbooks should feature photos for every, not almost every, recipe. Not only does this book fill the bill beautifully, but the photos, in addition to featuring the beverage illustrate serving suggestions as well.On this frosty day, the "Fireside Cocktails" appealed the most. Cutting it down to serve two, I made the Aztec Chocolate Punch. Can you say decadent? Topped with Brandy Whipped Cream, this delicious after dinner drink (read: dessert) warmed up with tequila and spiced with nutmeg and ground ancho chile, this was the best cup of hot chocolate that I have ever had the pleasure to drink.
