Cocktails evoke glamour - whether it is James Bond ordering a Martini 'shaken not stirred' or Sarah Jessica Parker and her friends in 'Sex in the City' sensuously sipping Cosmopolitans. The Design Mix - Bars, Cocktails & Style brilliantly captures the sophisticated, alluring world of today's international bar scene.
