It's a bit of a mystery exactly why this Cocktail Construction Chart was made but we're glad that it was. In October of 1974, Cleve "Red" Ketcham working for the U.S. Forest Service, drew this ode to the cocktail possibly as a joke for his coworkers. Somehow it got mixed into some other official documents and it passed through into the National Archives where it was found recently. The original chart was drawn in white paper with black text but we gave a bit more color and turned the background blue and the text white.
We print all of our designs ourselves on the highest quality materials made in the USA. We use an award winning Canon ipf8300 printer with their 12 color inkset to get the most vibrant colors that will last a lifetime.

I was looking for a piece for above my desk and that I will be able to have forever. This map was the perfect item - large, beautiful, colorful (yet, subtle) and interesting to look at. High quality framing too. Thank you!!
I recently purchased the North America 1912 USGS Map in Black with the walnut frame as a gift for my fiancee and WOW, I was beyond impressed with the beauty and elegance of this map. I highly recommend the framing. The quality and craftsmanship are superb and it framed the print so perfectly. In this case I think the black background and delicate white lines of the map go perfectly with the walnut option if you're going for a more elegant and elevated look. Needless to say, my fiancee LOVED his gift. I am now a Muir Way fan for life!
