Their distinctive, clean, uncluttered photography always features black tuxedo-like backdrops. Meredith Kalmes, from Detroit, Michigan, and Chrissy Clark, from St. Louis, Missouri, (both redheads) created Tuxedo No.2 to be a cocktail guide that embraces simplicity and utility without skimping on aesthetic. Their approachable, well-tested recipes are inspired by what they see and experience from books and bars. Their no-frills photography makes skimming for your desired cocktail that mucheasier. It's classic and classy. The same goes with the writing.
