Community Picks -- Your Best Cocktail

November  6, 2014

Our latest contest is going to shake (or stir) things up. We're partnering with our friends at to find the best cocktails out there -- and we need your help.

Today: The results are in -- here are the recipes our community loved from the Your Best Cocktail contest!

Once again, we want to give a big thanks to all of our volunteer recipe testers for your thoughtful comments and for helping us continue to strengthen our recipe recommendations. You can read the winning headnote and tester's comments by clicking through to the Community Picks recipes — the comments are at the top. And even if the recipe you tested wasn't chosen as a CP, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!

We were lucky we weren't schnockered, as my mom would say, by the end of the day. It was a fun one though!
