It might be that cocktails are easy to come by. Or it might be that South Florida is difficult terrain to safely navigate while sober. But it's probably just that we fucking love to drink. Because we all love to drink, and because there are so many venues in which to do it, the despots heading up New Times decided we ought to make things easy for our readers.
So we compiled a list of ten good cocktails, some with secret and complicated recipes, some simple and straightforward, all tasty and drunk-inducing. If you derive any pleasure whatsoever from Night Watch, our regularly appearing nightlife column, you should read this now. Consider it your guide to South Florida cocktail-culture.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
