Minimalist Guide To Making 78 Classic Cocktails


Dry January? You're over halfway. We would congratulate you, but your presence on this article probably means you're eager to reign havoc on your poor, newly recovered liver. For shame. 

A potential WMD (the D stands for 'drunk'), the following chart is the work of data journalist and design guru David McCandles, creator of the painfully pretty Information is Beautiful site.

Appropriately titled Cocktails, the beautifully designed poster gives details on how to make 78 drinks that "every bar person and cocktail monster should know". Minimal illustrations provide details on drink structure, glassware choice and mixing method, dividing drinks into their appropriate category. 

If you're wanting more detail, you can find the data behind the poster here. Drink responsibly.
