Tarot of Cocktails is an original drink recipe deck. Each card will feature a tarot-themed illustration on one side and a craft cocktail recipe on the other. Although inspired by the beauty of tarot, the cards are designed for delicious drinks, not divination.
Each card in Tarot of Cocktails began as a hand-drawn illustration. Taking the basic composition of a classic tarot card, I would replace key elements with references to the drink. After sketching in pencil on watercolor paper, I traced the drawings in black ink. Finally, they were scanned, digitally colorized and shrunk to 3” x 5”, the size of the final deck. They will be professionally printed on substantial stock to create 30 little works of art. The deck will also come with a companion booklet with tips, tricks and additional features.
The 30 drink recipes in the Tarot of Cocktails deck cover a wide spectrum. Created with the casual connoisseur in mind, there are stiff sippers, boozy floats, light summery drinks and so much more. Some need only a few simple ingredients, while others have a longer list and require prep work like making an infused syrup. Inspired by classic cocktails, drinks I've enjoyed along the way and sheer imagination, I formulated, tested and tweaked each one to ensure it is both delicious and dynamic.
We are in the process of finalizing all the details of the product and intend to go into production pending a successful Kickstarter! We are using Kickstarter to fund the first print run. By supporting this Kickstarter, you will be one of the first to own a Tarot of Cocktails deck.
Cheers to you! The future looks bright.
Risks and challenges
There are a lot of variables when it comes to printing. The level of interest in the product will affect the quantity ordered, which in turn affects the cost. Additionally, the quotes we were given by the printer and box manufacturer are only estimates and may differ from the actual cost. Between a lot of number-crunching and communication with the printer, I'm confident that we'll deliver a stellar product to our backers whether the Kickstarter is a modest success or a smash hit!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
