The cards that started it all. Cocktail Cards were a lockdown project that became a Kickstarter campaign at the end of 2020. The Kickstarter did pretty well and it reached 3,000% of the funding target!
At the time, many of us were stuck at home and they were designed to be the ultimate cocktail reference guide in a neat little deck of cards that you could use at home to make your favourite cocktails.
The front of the cards show 52 cocktail recipes in a clear and simple way. In addition to the standard card values in diagonally opposite corners, each card has four sections showing: cocktail name, ingredients, how to make it, and what glass to use.
There are also two jokers so you can add your own cocktails to the deck.
While the fronts of the cards are simple and informative, the backs are beautiful. We wanted the cards to initially look like regular playing cards, so the design takes inspiration from classic playing card design. However, if you look more closely you'll see that every element of the design is cocktail themed.
The cards are standard poker size - 89 x 63 mm (3½ x 2½ in), so when you're not making cocktails they're perfect for all your regular card games, magic tricks, etc.
The cards are printed by the United States Playing Card Company, makers of the world-famous Bicycle cards.
