German based illustrator Julie Jah got an enviable assignment for an artist and cineaste. She was commissioned to do the drawings for some movie inspired Cocktails/drinks for the Berlin Grand Hotel. The only requirement was that the movie have a hotel involved in the plot or be shot mostly in one.

The 21 illustrations Jah came up with play like a magnificent game of Casino 21 where you always have the winning hand. What makes up the inner workings of the drinks I leave to your imagination. Leave your imagined cocktail/drink recipes in the comments section if you are inclined.

The Grand is a welcome friend that has been part of the Berlin cityscape in various incarnations since 1812. It was formerly a school. After a 25 year vacancy The Grand reopened in 2012 as a boutique hotel that features a spacious bar and a sumptuous dining room.
