OK it's time for confessions. There are a lot of revered classic or new classic cocktails out there which are known for the right reason - they are delicious and memorable. However every once in a while you cannot help but wonder what the big deal is about - all your cocktailian friends rave about them, but they just don't work for you...
This thread was inspired by Jeff Morgenthaler's confession on twitter a few days ago:
Cocktails I'm supposed to like, but don't: the Vieux Carré
To which Dale DeGroff responded:
Cocktails I'm supposed to like and don't...the Aviation... I know I know
Erick Castro from Polite Provisions in San Diego offered his two bêtes noires:
Mine are the Bronx and the Blood & Sand
And these two happen to be on my list too...
I remember reading about people's dislike for the Vesper as well.
What's on your list?
