Just wanted to explain some of the changes on the site in the last few weeks. I have removed a lot of liquor and mixers that had little or no content. These were placeholders for future content but were also crowding search and browse results needlessly.
I have also simplified the liquor and mixer categories (there were way too many) and flavors.
I will continue this process on the drink recipes and will also start revising adding new drink recipes over the coming months.
Hope the changes bring you a tighter, more useful cocktail website.
OK, just got back from a local restaurant that patterns itself after a nightclub. Guy in a tuxedo up on stage singing the classics (good voice). I face the Big Decision...cocktails or beer?
This place has tried to style itself up. They have a cocktail list and it's not all [fill in with a crazy Martini idea] Martinis. They have a Manhattan. Good. They have a Rob Roy. Whoa. And they list the ingredients and they look legit. Knob Creek bourbon, vermouth, bitters, and a cherry for the Manhattan. Damn.
I'm still suspicious. No prices on any of them. And they have a "Victor's Mai Tai" made from the "Trader's secret formula with four rums." Well Trader Vic never used four rums in his Mai Tai so the secret formula is probably pineapple juice and Rose's grenadine. And "four rums" is code for coconut, blueberry, pineapple, and Dragonberry flavored rum. No way this place has four ...
I found Blason de Bourgogne's Cremant sparkling wines at Trader Joe's and have really enjoyed them. They are a fantastic value at about $10 and I think their quality rivals some domestic sparkling wines that cost twice that.
