The Magnificent Bastard Cocktail Contest -- Tournament Bracket Set

The Magnificent Bastard Cocktail Contest -- Tournament Bracket Set
There was such a positive response to the Magnificent Bastard Cocktail Contest we needed to pre-screen the entries in order to achieve the desired number for a single-elimination bracket tournament. Some we could dismiss out-of-hand simply because they either did not qualify as a cocktail or were so insipid they deserve public ridicule, a service which we plan on providing in coming days.

For the remainder, we performed an initial taste test. After a lot of muddling, shaking, straining, and slurring, we narrowed the field down to the 32 best cocktail entries. Check 'em out and feel free to play along at home. The first games start this Thursday, February 11, with the winner to be crowned April 5.
