Designed for lovers of cocktails, art, history and Vietnam, the Cocktail Art of Saigon manual is a collection of 41 original cocktail recipes painstakingly created over the last three years.
The cocktail recipes are inspired by a combination of modern day street life in Ho Chi Minh City, the history of its streets, and the names associated with them. There are 41 cocktails in the manual paying homage to 41 years of peace since the war’s end.
Each cocktail recipe is accompanied by a hand-drawn illustration by Richie himself of what it looks like, together with a pen and ink sketch of the street as it looks today. Included is a taste indicator marking the balance between sour, sweet, umami, bitter and chilli.
The Cocktail Art of Saigon manual is available for purchase at Shri restaurant and lounge.
