August 22, 2019 — Drinking pink comes to summer reading with the publication of Hip, Hip Rosé, a delightfully illustrated parody of a well-known children’s story portraying Alice, passionate patron of the pink drink who, after a particularly happy, happy hour, finds herself in for a rouge awakening: The next morning she is completely rosé colored! Seeking a pallor of a paler pantone, it seems only the local sommelier can help. Will Alice take his advice or end up with a bright fuchsia ahead of her? Readers find out in this whimsical tale about life seen through rosé-colored glasses.
Hip Hip Rosé answers the question: What really happens when you rosé all day?
This witty little book fills a void in both the literary and wine markets by offering a clever, fictional romp about rosé, rather than yet another wine appreciation or recipe book. HHR is ideal for hostess gifting and is meant to be shared with readers’ own sipping sisterhoods.
The Sipping Sisterhood celebrates friendship and fun via happy-hour-related merchandise and interactive forums. This debut story in the Sipping Sisterhood series speaks to our inner “mischievous girl,” and taps into that love of curling up with a fun book. Additional titles about other favorite varietals will be released in the coming months. Written with a dash of fantasy, these are, in essence, children’s books for consenting adults. Read, clink and be merry!
