With the holiday season right around the corner we’ve got three things on our minds, booze, gifts and of course design. This new book, “The Architecture of the Shot,” from author Paul Knorr and architectural planner Melissa Wood, speaks to all three. In keeping with the authors’ expertise, this clever piece of literature includes 75 blueprints detailing the creation of “the perfect shot from the bottom up,” as if they were each a mini building.

Each recipe includes the precise measurements for concocting the perfect shot, as well as the recommended garnish or embellishment. The drawing depicts what each measurement should look like from the bottom to the top with all of the ingredients contained within. Included in this perfect road map for mixing things up is also the order in which you should layer your liquors and even recommended brands.
