“Cocktails: The Art of Mixing Perfect Drinks” bears the signature of Klaus St. Rainer, manager of Munich’s Goldene Bar, both literally and figuratively. Along with attentive graphic details, the renowned bartender’s handwriting characterizes the overall design. Each chapter divider features his legendary scrawl, while individual recipe tips are fittingly framed by water rings. Armin Smailovic’s drink photographs – all taken in the bar itself – provide stylish visual accompaniment to St. Rainer’s singular concoctions.
