Book-Inspired Cocktails: “Rosé & DiNunzio”

What happens when the quest for justice pits you against your own partner? 

Try and make amends with this week's Pick Your Poison—where we create a cocktail inspired by a recently published mystery, thriller, or crime novel—the “Rosé & DiNunzio” cocktail, inspired by Lisa Scottoline's fifth Rosato & DiNunzio novel, Exposed!

Exposed by Lisa Scottoline is the fifth book in the Rosato & DiNunzio series.

A battle for justice pits partner against partner…

Mary DiNunzio wants to represent her old friend Simon Pensiera, a sales rep who was wrongly fired by his company, but her partner Bennie Rosato represents the parent company. When she confronts Mary, explaining this is a conflict of interest, an epic battle of wills and legal strategy between the two ensues—ripping the law firm apart, forcing everyone to take sides and turning friend against friend.

Sometimes loyalty can be lethal.
