Any enthusiastic Beantown imbiber has doubtless stumbled on DRINKBOSTON, this year’s well-deserved pick for the city’s best blog. Written and run by journalist Lauren Clark, an experienced taproom denizen, both behind the bar and in front of it, DrinkBoston is as comprehensive an examination of the art of drinking as you’ll find. Our favorite feature is the long list of locally linked cocktail recipes — some from history (like the Boston Flip — whiskey, Madeira, simple syrup, half an egg yolk — from the 1934 edition of Boothby’s World Drinks), and some concocted in the best bars around town. The posts range from historical miscellany, to events notices, to short tidbits (nips, as they have it) on all matters alcohol. Time to raise a glass.
