“I used to be an architect, but designing buildings is actually quite hard and I didn’t have the patience, so drawing stuff on little bits of yellow paper seemed like a step in the right direction for me,” Hutton told the BBC. “I’m still not comfortable with the term cartoonist, or illustrator, or artist, mainly due to the fact that I consider this level of drawing skill far below those kinds of titles.” This medium, however, is all that Chad needs to unleash his creativity.

Are you growing grapes to produce wine? Harvesting grain to craft a barrel of beer? These are the old fashioned ways. There are alternative ingredients you can use. For example, the influence a mom makes and being too bothered to choose something else, just to name a few. Chaz Hutton knows them all and is kind enough to let everyone in on the booze secrets. The recipes first appeared in The New Yorker under the title “A Millennial’s Guide to Cocktails”, and lately have been blowing up on the internet. Scroll down to please your inner snob and let us know in the comments what do you think about the series!
