World Cocktail Adventures is a virtual cocktail tour in book form by creative duo Loni Carr and Brett Gramse of The Whiskey Ginger. With a total of 40 unique cocktail recipes featured, each recipe includes easy-to-access ingredients and a variety of spirits.
What's the travel twist, you ask? Well, each recipe is inspired by a different destination around the world. You'll get a taste of the place's history and tourist attractions with a vintage-style travel poster to match. Then you'll get the real goods with a fun cocktail recipe, tips on glassware and bartending, and an illustration of the final cocktail.
This is a book for cocktail lovers and travel dreamers. You could be enjoying a Desert Road tequila cocktail and imagine yourself in Amarillo, Texas, or sipping on a Fire and Ice whiskey cocktail inspired by Reykjavik, Iceland.
We’re asking you to come on an adventure ... a cocktail world adventure! World Cocktail Adventures mixes travelling and drinking, muddles fantasy with non-fiction, and retells tales never told. Just remember, this book is meant to be used. It's not your mum's white couch. Write in it. Spill a drink on it. Pass it around. Love was poured into the making of it, and you can honor the creators by truly enjoying it.
About the Author
Illustrator Loni Carr and copywriter Brett Gramse are the team behind The Whiskey Ginger, a design studio based in Bozeman, Montana, USA. They specialize in graphic design and vintage-style illustrations and know damn well that a good cocktail is the best lubricant for generations of great ideas. Loni was born and raised in a small, quirky town in central Montana. She first drew inspiration from the characters that would frequent the local tavern. Brett embraced the spirit of seeing America when he moved from the coast of Maine to the wilderness of Montana with nothing but a guitar in hand and a taste for adventure. You'll find him with an old journal and an Old Fashioned, on the hockey rink, or crooning new lyrics by a fireside.

Each destination-inspired beverage recipe comes with a tour-like introduction, page-popping vintage-style illustrations, bartending tips, and more." - Jacqueline Raposo, Epicurious
