”The mojito is probably the third most popular cocktail right now and it’s muscling in on No. 2,” said Dale DeGroff, author of The Craft of the Cocktail and considered one of the country’s leading mixologists. “Everything Latin is hot.’

  1. “Places like Missouri?” What the hell is that supposed to mean? Listen up you snotty little jet-setting twit. I’m from St. Louis, Missouri, and I’ve had caipirinha’s on the beaches of Brasil, and I can probably make a better tasting one than your metro-sexual, fancy-pants, french-cuffed, lisp talking, sissy of a bartender at your favorite overpriced idioteque! Places like Missouri….. give me a break! Go choke on something unpleasant.
