The Periodic Table of Alcohol

The Periodic Table of Alcohol infographic

The Periodic Table of Alcohol infographic does a good job of organizing popular alcoholic drinks in the periodic table design format.  Posted on Visual.ly by designer Mayra Magalhães (mayra.artes), 

This infographic shows important information about the most famous alcoholic beverages.

It’s unclear who the infographic was designed for.  The footer of the infographic lists BestCollegesOnline.com, the landing page on Visual.ly lists the Consumer Media Network and the URL actually links to CarInsurance.org.  It looks like this design is a modification of a design from 2011 done for Best Colleges Online called the College Student’s Guide to Boozing.  I’m guessing Mayra uploaded this recently to be included as a part of her design portfolio.

The infographic has been heavily shared, and I found this version on Laughing SquidBusiness Insider, Popular Science, This is Happiness, Geekologie, and Gizmodo.

I was disappointed when I looked close enough at this graphic to see the elements.

A table of elements should be elements and not compounds.

The periodic table of elements has things grouped by similarity and weight, and you can tell how things will mix by where they fall in the chart. This table doesn't teach anything about how to make a good drink.

If it had elements, such as whiskey, rum, vodka, orange juice, grapefruit juice, etc, and they were grouped so that you could figure out what might mix well then it would be building on a good metaphor. As it is, after looking at it once, there's no value to me in looking a second time.

In above post the infographic designer has done a good job in which he has tried his best to convey very important information about popular beverages (alcoholic). In this diagrame a viewer can get a lot of information without reading tons of pages about this article.

Great post! A periodic table for fun. but if you want a periodic table, which is a tabular arrangement of the chemical elements, organized on the basis of their atomic numbers, electron configurations (electron shell model), and recurring chemical properties. View an interactive periodic table that has information for all elements. http://myperiodictable.us/
