This web site is my own personal place to store my favorite drink recipes. Granted, most of these drinks I culled together from other places. Drink web sites, check. Manufacturer's web sites, check. Restaurant menus, check. And yes, there are a few of my own.
Of most importance is that every drink on this site I have made, and photographed myself. You will see ratings for each drink. Every drink starts out with a rating of 4 stars. I have found that some people don't like strong drinks (such as a Manhattan or Vieux Carre), so I tend to rate these at 3 stars, because they are an aquired taste. If I really, really like a drink it gets bumped to 5 stars. This is especially the case when I have tweaked on a recipe to make it just the way I like it (The Martian is the best example of this). You will never see a drink rated at 1 or 2 stars. Why? Simple, I won't want to make it again. If I try something and don't like it it does not get on this site.
Feel free to poach my recipes. After all, I poached many of them myself. If you like one and find a way to make it better, please let me know. If you have a suggestion for a drink, please send it to me. Provide a 1 or 2 sentence description, the list of ingredients and the instructions on how to prepare it. If I like it, I will photograph it and put it on the site... and give you the credit.
