GEEKING OUT WITH COCKTAILS

FORGET The Periodic Table of Elements, this periodic chart is much more fun!  If you’ve ever wanted an quick and simple way to know the alcohol percentage and primary flavor profile in a cocktail, look no further than the Periodic Table of Alcohol.  Designed by Visual.ly user mayra.artes, the graphic breaks down drinks by type (Fermented, Mixed and Distilled) and then by liquor (Cider, Beer, Wine, Tequila, Brandy/Cognac, Vodka, Rum, Whisky, and Gin).  Each drink is color-coded and accompanied by an alcohol percentage in the upper right corner as well as a small illustration with its name below.  And just like the regular Periodic Table, there are even two corresponding rows at the bottom that are separated from the main table.  But instead of Lanthanides and Actinides, mayra.artes features mixed drinks and liqueur-based beverages, including the margarita, Manhattan and Mudslide.
