Drink Drank Drunk

Though the days when journalists kept a bottle of hooch in the desk drawer have since passed, that doesn't mean we've lost our thirst for drinking, or thinking about drinking. The Drink Drank Drunk Issue mulls over alcohol at every angle, from haute mixology to the history of Jägermeister and rock, from our forefathers' booze of choice to Austin's current (over?)drinking culture.

We found two willing mixologists to take our challenge to incorporate some pretty nasty ingredients in palatable cocktails: Cameron Cooper and Lindsey Reynolds, aka The Goodetime Gals. Fifteen secret ingredients, seven rounds, and five minutes per round. In the first three rounds, the women competed with each other, and in the remaining rounds, they collaborated. Rounds 6-7 included a lightning round in which they had their choice of four ingredients out of six and had to make two drinks.
