Have you tried mixing a Mojito? What about a Rusty Nail? Or a Cosmopolitan? With See Mix Drink, the first-ever cocktail book to offer instruction through info-graphics, making the drinks you love at home is as easy as, well, See, Mix, Drink.
This unique, illustrated guide graphically demonstrates how to make 100 of today’s most popular cocktails. For each drink, color-coded ingredients are displayed in a line drawing of the appropriate glassware, alongside a pie chart that spells out the drink’s composition by volume for intuitive mixing. No other cocktail book is this easy or fun. Instantly understandable 1-2-3 steps show exactly how each drink is prepared, and anecdotes, pronunciation guides, and photographs of the finished drinks will turn newbie bartenders into instant mixologists.
I don’t drink, but we have family members and friends who do. So I thought it would be nice to know how to mix some drinks for get togethers or parties, if we ever decided to do that.
This book has all the information you need to make a wide variety of drinks and is very simple to follow.

Each drink has graphs and charts showing the type of glass to use and how full to make the drink. There is also a chart that shows the percentage of ingredients. The titles for each drink are: ingredients, description, best occasion, proportions, time required, instructions and a photo of the finished drink.
I think this book is awesome!! It takes the worry out of making a drink when you have no clue what you’re doing. It would be perfect for anyone who likes making drinks or someone who would like to learn. I haven’t used the book yet to make a drink, but wouldn’t be afraid to with this book at my side.
