    I'm with you on 1, 5 and 10 but do prefer a shiraz to a zinfandel.

    lots of hyphenated drinks! They all sound delicious, but I wonder what makes a miami frapp different than the Starbucks variety?

    Great list! 🙂 You definitely need to come up to Chicago to try some frozen custard – I took The Englishman yesterday and he said, "This is the first time that food has made me HAPPY." I told him he'd been leading a very sad existence :).

    miami frappuccinos are from starbucks, but just consumed in miami. somehow, that always makes them better. 🙂

    bourbon and all her beautiful cousins are conspicuously missing. There should be a separate list for spirits.P.S. I had to type "dxuetaj" to publish this comment.
