The Cocktail Bandits know their way around a drink. In 2015, Johnny Caldwell and Taneka Reaves participated in the Atlanta Food + Wine Festival, crafting their first exclusive cocktail recipe for an event. "We were seeing the food pictures, natural hair pictures, fitness pictures, and things like that," Taneka Reaves said in a CP story this past spring about social media influencers. "And we thought, 'There's no women talking about beverages.'"

Well, with almost 30,000 Instagram followers, pop-ups all around town, and now a book under their belts, it's safe to say Caldwell and Reaves have changed all that. Celebrate their success, and taste their creations, at their Holy Spirits! launch party at Pancito & Lefty Fri. July 6. Tickets are $25 for the party or $50 for the party and a copy of the book.

As we reported in Sept. 2017, the book is an "overview of Charleston cocktail culture from a unique, urban perspective" and the book includes a history of alcohol in Charleston in addition to recipes and insight on the scene from the prolific bloggers.
