If you’re anything like me, your inventory is littered with freebie cocktails.Â I think the freebies in my cocktail collection can charitably be described as being ofÂ varying quality.Â For the most part these haveÂ been good enough (and some are actually quite nice).Â Even so, I have at times found myself wishing for greater variety, a little more elegance.Â To the rescue comes Maximilian Milosz with his new collection of 25 classic cocktails.Â Whether you’re in the mood for something refined, like a Manhattan or a Martini, or something more casual–Sex on the Beach, anyone?–you’ll find that Max has a suitable libation ready for your refreshment.Â And, unlike many of the items featured on this blog, they are without exception unisex and look just great on the ladies.Â
The cocktails are allÂ highly detailed, with impressive texture artwork.Â The Dry Martini is especially elegant with its glistening, almost-crystalline surface and bright olive garnish…my personal preference, although a twist is also lovely.Â Each drink includes a dignified built-in hold pose, so you’ll never find yourself waving your drink around dramatically but wastefully as your AO cycles.Â If you look closely, you’ll occasionally see some subtle animation,Â too–the Bellini’s champagne flute bubbles rather prettily.
Here you see the Bloody Mary, Mai Tai and Mojito.Â Careful attention has been paid to the garnishes, which is just as it should be.Â Garnishes aren’t merely accents, after all, but in many cases integral parts of the drink recipe.Â The Bloody Mary’s celery stalk, the Mai Tai’s paper parasol and the Mojito’s mint leaves and lime wheel are all quite properly placed and nicely detailed.Â Consider also the Gimlet, Gin & Tonic and Gin Fizz; theÂ Manhattan, Whisky Sour and Old Fashioned; the Cuba Libre, Bellini and Tom Collins.Â Although I’m not able toÂ feature all 25 cocktails here, they’re all rezzed and available for your inspection in Max’s shop.
