Color Your Cocktails illustrated by Terri Dennis
I have to admit that Color Your Cocktails is my kind of coloring book. It combines my love of cocktails and my love of coloring into the one book. What more could a girl ask for?
This soft cover book has a lovely cover on it. It is full of happy colors that make you want to crack open the Crayolas (or your brand of choice) and for me also mix a margarita 🙂 the book combines recipes with a nice image to color on each page. I particularly like this book, because I think it would make a great gift for someone.
A simplified version of the cover is the title page in the book. The illustrations are printed on white paper which is thin and is the type of paper used by independent coloring book artists. The other thing I like about this book is that all the ancillary pages, title, author, copyright, table of contents have a picture to color. These pages will also make great places to test out your markers and pencils.
Unlike most coloring books, Color Your Cocktails has a table of contents and each page is numbered for your convenience. As this is part recipe book these additions make sense. At the top of each page is the name of the recipe and space to write the name of the colorist. At the foot of each page is a copyright statement and website address.
Flipping through the book to do the coloring book review I realised a very important thing. Vodka. There are so many flavours of vodka that I was unaware of! I have been sick and unable to make an excursion to the local bottle shop to check this out though 🙁
The other thing I like about Color Your Cocktails is the cute names of the cocktails. You can already envisage a good time with names like In Case of Alien Invasion Cocktail, Bad Hair Day Cocktail and the Coupe De Villain Coffee Cocktail!
Each illustration in the book is outlined with a thick black border. The illustrations themselves in the majority have a thick black line. This makes it easier for those with visual impairment to see the images to color. As you may know, I am not a fan of coloring fiddly bits (although I love looking at complex images) so I love the large spaces that a lot of the drawings have, making it easy for me to see and enjoy coloring. I sense that this artist is very concerned about copyright as within each image you will also find a copyright statement. It is important for artist’s to protect their copyright so I can understand that, but I will be coloring over it. The illustrations on the whole contain images of cocktail glasses and the relevant ingredients but there are a few quirky images included like aliens and women in different states.
Integrated within the illustration you will see the clearly written instructions to make the cocktail.
Color Your Cocktails is not a high end coloring book. It is a coloring book filled with 45 images to color and have a good time with. At the end of the day, you have a lovely recipe book or a gift for a friend.
