Drink ratings, and a word on jigger sizes

I’m pleased to report that all drink recipes on this weblog, past and future, now include a rating of their overall quality. A five-star drink is the apotheosis of deliciousness, while a one-star drink is so bilious as to provoke gastrointestinal distress. You can search for drinks with a specific rating by clicking the sidebar links.

Also, about jigger sizes: Traditionally (though not universally), a “pony” measures 1 oz, and a “jigger” measures 1 1/2 oz. However, Baker states that he prefers 2 oz jiggers. I have a few more drinks queued up that I haven’t posted yet, but once I get through those, I’ll probably switch to Baker’s 2 oz jigger for most drinks.
