The cocktail illustration series is inspired by my love of stemware and bar accessories. My mother drank whiskey out of Waterford glasses, my nana served sherry from a crystal decanter and wine glasses at my house always have a thin lip- the wine just floats on your tongue as in rolls off the delicate glass. Juliska’s black Harriet glasses are my favorites even if I am just drinking water or ginger ale my favorite beverage. There is an elegance to glassware like the charm of old movies, cafes in Paris, and Bemelman’s Bar in New York. But my love for barware started with a giraffe swizzle stick my grandfather brought back from a pub in London for me. Cocktails are filled with imagination and design.
