Cocktails – A Yearbook

A great cocktail is equal parts exceptional ingredients and stylish presentation. Like a perfectly-mixed drink, this book blends content and design – showcasing recipes from the best bartenders in Europe in a unique editorial style. Each of the cocktail’s ingredients are depicted as symbols, which create a unique pictorial element when combined. These elements are kaleidoscopically mirrored to form an eye-catching pattern, enriching each recipe with its own distinctive graphic. In addition, every recipe is printed on a folded sheet of paper using Japanese binding, giving the reader the illusion of peering down into a brightly-filled glass.
