Check Out This Amazing Cocktail Chart
January 30, 2012
This poster is pretty darn amazing. Click to enlarge in a pop-up.
Also, it's on sale today, January 30th until noon Eastern Jan 31 for $28.
I can't seem to paste the text of the press release, but here's where to go to buy it from Pop Chart Lab.
I'm surprised that Absinthe takes such a large piece of the pie. Imagine if this poster was all that Jerry Thomas had left us. Gah!!!

Hmmm.... I don't see tequila on that chart.

Also, there are some errors. Bourbon for instance, does not belong in a Sidecar. :(

I heard about that. Interestingly I only just learned that in certain parts of the country sidecar = bourbon sidecar by default. I'd never heard of such a thing but I think it's like how in parts of the mid-west an old-fashioned is always made with brandy.

So, how did things get changed? Preference, or can you find precedence in regional cocktail guides? Reminds me of how vodka supplanted gin in the Martini.

I don't know when that regional preference developed, I imagine it's a long slow process. In SF, Negronis are typically served up in a cocktail glass, which is unusual but not too many of us realized that until we started traveling a lot. I thought it was weird when I see it written in cocktail books on the rocks. "That's not right," but turns out is the standard.
