A compilation of our favorite cocktail coverage. Here are some of our favorite concoctions: shaken, stirred, and dumped into a wooden treasure chest with some dry ice.

The aviation was largely forgotten for 100 years. Now it’s back, thanks in large part to a TV show (and it’s not “Mad Men”).

bloody-maria_300x195

Dressed in a garnish crown of onions, salami, and peppers, this tequila-based brunch cocktail packs a punch-you-in-the-face kind of spicy.
