Burke’s Complete Cocktail and Tastybite Recipes – Literary Monday

post iconMr. Burke was very particular and fastidious in his instructions.

Top 10 Cocktails of 2009

I was mulling over different ideas for an end-of-year post and landed on this fun list while looking at the year’s site activity. This list is as democratic as they come; it’s basically the top cocktails determined by views. The biggest surprise? The sidecar at #1, glad to see. It was always Rachel’s favorite.
