Best Classic Cocktails of 2011

What Was Your Favorite Classic Cocktail This Year?

What's old continues to be new again! Take a look at a smattering of bar tabs from around the country, and you'll note that consumers are not only continuing their love affair with classic cocktails, but reviving some that have faded from lost eras as well.

Spirit-forward drinks like the Manhattan and the Old Fashioned continue to reign supreme, as do anise-inflected tipples like the New Orleans Sazerac and that Hemingway standby, Death in the Afternoon. We're having fun revisiting old favorites (and, on occasion, updating them as well). Tell us: what was your favorite classic cocktail this year?

I'm with you, Amber! That said, I am a complete nut over a truly good and spicy Bloody Mary. The kind with extra pickles and tons of other assorted dunkers. Oh yeah.....! Come to mama.

Apparently I need to try some new things, because I have never actually had any of the drinks listed.

Just tried a Moscow Mule recently, and I am deeply in love. SO. AMAZING. Vodka, lime juice, and ginger beer.

I love Manhattans, but I just had my first Old Fashioned last night and it was pretty good as well!

My go-to is a manhattan because most places can make a decent Manhattan. But my "favorite" is probably the more elusive Sazerac.

Oh I can't decide between Death in the afternoon and sidecars!
