So says an outfit called "the Anvil":


I would note the disclaimer of "for better or worse".

    "For better or worse"? What's that all about? I want to drink my beverage, not marry it.

      There are some you drink because they're good (for better) and some because of their bad reputation. Think Hairy Buffalo or Everclear.

      Wha? No Hendrick's Martini on that list? Feh.

        Seems to be like they were trying to avoid naming specific brands of spirits (aside from one of kind items such as Pimms, Campari, etc.) -- probably due to advertising issues.

          That still won't make me ever drink a "pink lady".

        I'm trying to work through the list before the calendar year is up. 23 more to go with some of the drinks posted on the blog (link below). A few will be challenging like the Dulchin which requires dry apricot brandy (Polish style, not eau de vie or the liqueur style), but it should be a worthy exercise.

          I found it interesting that they specify French vermouth for a martini. Anybody else ever heard this?

            It's basically just another way to say dry vermouth. "Italian" would be sweet.
