Discover a Literary Cocktail This Summer

Pop Chart Lab has created The Cocktail Chart of Film & Literature, collecting the most literary cocktails for your summer mixology. Check it out:

A catalog of 49 drinks culled from great works of film and literature, depicting everything from Philip Marlowe’s Gin Gimlet to Fredo Corleone’s Banana Daiquiri to the simple yet effective Buttermaker Boilermaker … Each print is signed by the artists and numbered from a first printing of 500, and comes packaged in a custom Pop Chart Lab Test Tube … Using 100 lb. archival recycled stock certified by The Forest Stewardship Council, this poster is pressed on an offset lithographic press with vegetable-based inks in Flatlands, Brooklyn.

If you want more cocktail options, this GalleyCat editor created a variation on The Thin Man martini this summer–try our recipe at this link.

Studio 360 hosted a Fuzzy Novel competition this summer, collecting more than 100 cocktails mixed by listeners and named after famous books.

Brett Elms won the contest with the The Age of Innocence cocktail and Susan Steinway was the runner-up with the My Antonia. Bartender, poet and author Rosie Schaap mixed the winning drink in the video embedded above. Follow this link to listen to the whole episode.
