How do engineers mix their drinks? Very precisely and using a blueprint, it seems. Our friends over at flowingdata.com, dug up this vintage poster featuring over 30 classic drinks such as the Zombie, Gin Fizz & White Russian. According to the data on the poster itself, it seems to have been originally “issued for mass consumption” on May, 1, 1978. Ready to get mixing? A full sized pdf of the poster is available here.
Just how do you make that favorite drink? Brazilian illustrator Fabio Rex has shaken together some very well done infographic style images describing exactly what it takes to make that perfect drink. Each image includes the proportions of each ingredient and those aesthetic bits of garnish to top it all off, making the images both informative and intuitive with just the right subtle details to keep them tasting good.
