The Imbibers’ 100

Darcy, at Art of Drink proposes a list of 100 things that you should drink before you die. Since I never intend to die, I feel I have time to get to all of these. But in the interests of rational thought, I’ll go ahead and post it now.

List of Drinks You Must Try Before You Expire
(Bold are drinks I have tried. Crossed out are one’s I will not ever venture. Crossed out bolds are those I’ll never try again!) The indented items are those that still need some consideration.
