I've got 3 books on cocktails and have been experimenting, some success and some failures. I enjoy Caipirinhas, Aviations (though I can't find the authentic maraschino liqueur), Devils, and sweet Manhattans.
I don't drink beer, can't stand whiskey and such as is, what I do like is wine and cocktails. What I'm interested in is what cocktails do chowhounders enjoy?
Do you favor the classics, or do you try every new funky named (or colored) concotion that comes out?
