Engineer Shaan Hurley used the modeling software AutoCAD to illustrate how to concoct over 70 classic drinks, and we can’t thank him enough. There’s two schematics: one focused on whiskey cocktails, and the other on non-whiskey based cocktails. Hurley shows everything you need to know to craft the perfect drink—including proportions, garnishes, and the correct glassware.

“This is a classic to enjoy plotted, not stirred,” jokes Hurley. The two schematics can be downloaded, opened, and tweaked in any AutoCAD reader.

John Brownlee of Fast Co Design writes, “Once you learn to read the schematics, you’ll see that each chart contains everything you need to know to mix a classic cocktail, right down to what glass you should serve it in and whether it should be shaken or stirred.”

Let’s take a closer look at the instructions for a whiskey sour.

And here’s the very colorful key.
