Whether you’re reading a classic novel or watching the latest film, sometimes a story can just make you… thirsty. We’re talking Don Draper’s Old Fashioned, Hunter S. Thompson’s Singapore Sling (with Mescal back and beer chaser) or James Bond’s ubiquitous Martini (a Vesper if we’re talking Casino Royal). These drinks in many ways define the characters in the literature and films we love, while also instilling a healthy thirst in many of us. Now Pop Chart Labs has produced a delicious new poster honoring 49 of these story based beverages.

Each drink has graphically detailed measurements for each ingredient, along with any special instructions the story might have detailed in its making. Happily, the poster mixes fact and fiction giving recipes for both real life drinks (like a Mint Julep from The Great Gatsby) and those which you’ll probably have trouble finding ingredients for (like the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy).

Each 18 by 24 inch lithograph print is signed by the artists, printed on 100 lb. archival recycled stock certified by The Forest Stewardship Council and released in a limited edition of 500. Explore the whole collection of storied drinks at popchartlab.com.

  1. Why have they chosen an ‘Americano’ for James Bond? He’s most famous for a vodka martini (Shaken, not stirred…)!
