The Fashionable Cocktail officially launched!

'The Fashionable Cocktail' book has officially launched. It was celebrated with a delicious cocktail (or two) from the book. Clink, clink! I can highly recommend the Debutante and the Turkish Delight Martini. The book features the lovely Jane Rocca's fashion take on cocktails. It's a super nicely designed package on matte stock with lovely details, thanks to designer Heather Menzies from Hardie Grant. It should be in a bookstore near you soon! Try Readers Feast in Melbourne city and Readings for a start.

Here's just a few of my favourite illustrations and spreads.

The Fashionable Cocktail

The book that consumed my life for a few months this year (and late last year), 'The Fashionable Cocktail' is finally launching at the end of August/early September. Written by Jane Rocca, published by Hardie Grant, and illustrated by moi. I did have a different cover but this is the final design by Michelle Mackintosh. The book is jam packed full of pretty awesome cocktail recipes and illustrations (150 or so but who's counting!)

The launch is in partnership with Melbourne Spring Fashion Week at Touche Hombre. Tix include Mexican canapes, cocktails, a signed book, goodie bags plus it will be launched by the ever hilarious Helen Razor. Wanna come clink glasses? Details below.
