Wine Cocktails by A.J. Rathbun
I've had the pleasure of getting to know a friend of a friend via the interwebs, Mr. A.J. Rathbun. He is a swell dude chock-full of cocktail knowledge, with videos and books to prove it! I was so impressed with his mixology skillz that I decided to make him the very first "Guest Swiller". [Click his name above for a bio.]
Being a wino, I just love his book, Wine Cocktails. Since the Summer season is upon us, there is no better time to start experimenting with your wine. I hope you enjoy this lil' Q & A session. Happy Drinking!
1. What are some trends you’ve been seeing in the use of wine in cocktails in the United States?
I think there’s been an influx of creativity in the usage of wine in cocktails and other drinks, which has been leading to both more interesting drink menus, and ones that include more wine cocktails.
