Raise a glass to beloved artists with this book featuring cocktails inspired by modern & contemporary artists. It's a boozy tour of art history with this collection of recipes for expertly crafted cocktails, each one a unique creation inspired by its namesake artist. Unwind with a refreshing tequila-watermelon Frida Kahlo. Spark some inspiration while sipping on a Salvador Dalí. Or mix it up with a colorfully sweet Yayoi Kusama. Each of these recipes draws from elements of the artist's life and work in colorful ways that any cocktail enthusiast will enjoy; think tomato garnishes in the Andy Warhol, golden turmeric in the Gustav Klimt, and flower syrup in the Georgia O'Keeffe.
