an illustrated guide to cocktails

by Grace Bonney

I’ve never been a big drinker, but I love the trappings of cocktail culture. Creating a home bar (wait until you see Amy’s home bar in the D*S book!) has always been an obsession of mine, and it was so hard to pass up the vintage chinoiserie bar I saw at Brimfield this year. So while I may not drink enough to warrant cocktail accessories, I still love looking at them (and watching them being made).

An Illustrated Guide to Cocktails was illustrated and published by Elizabeth Graeber, along with author Orr Shtuhl. The artwork is so perfect that it makes me want to try a number of concoctions I’ve only heard about from friends who frequent fancy bars. Elizabeth and Orr self-published this book and are selling it on Etsy, so I’m always happy to support people publishing great books on their own.

*We’re posting an abbreviated schedule today (Biz Ladies and City Guides will resume later this week) in preparation for the debut of the D*S book and book trailer at 11! Stay tuned . . .
