|The "Thai Boxer" from Cyrus|
...only this one is on the chillier side and is local for Bay Area folks, put together by one of my favorite foodie sites, Tasting Table. They cover food/drinks/chefs/recipes from around the country, maintain city guides for San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C., and have fabulous newsletters for all of them. The link above takes you to the SF version, but you can choose whichever one you want from the drop-down menu on the top-right of the page. So back to the cocktails! This list, which is a "Best Of" for 2010, is well done and rather inspiring with it's clickable recipe pop-up boxes! My preferred beverages are the Blue Bottle Cocktail (chilled espresso and vodka) from Nopa and the classic Tommy's Margarita with quality tequila from Tommy's Mexican Restaurant! Is it obvious or what that I'm ready for the school semester to end and the holiday festivities to begin?!
