The NC Double Shot
We've crowned kings in the snackets for cheese, ice cream, cereal, and candies both chocolate and non-. Now it's time for yet another series of face-offs — but this one's at the bar, as the Bunkler Snacketology Clinic puts the "sis" back in "cirrhosis" with The NC Double Shot cocktails bracket!
TN food-bracket vets will remember how the tourney works, more or less — Keckler and I build the bracket, then post commentary on the match-ups; you vote in the corresponding polls; everyone involved talks trash about cream drinks (hew) and gets in fights over whether garnish is considered a separate ingredient.
One change this time around: we had so much trouble narrowing down the entries to 64 that we opened the polls early in a qualifying tournament — and you decided which drinks would make the bracket cut.
Watch the front page of TN, GrubReport.com, or the TN Twitter feed (that's @tomatonation) for updates.
You can also find updates and instructions on this page throughout the tournament.

Where do we vote?
Right here on TN. Look for the "NC Double Shot" tag; that will lead you to the current polls. If you can't find a poll, that means we'rebetweenrounds.
How could you leave off [drink I love] and include [vintage cocktail that sounds nast]?! YOUR SNACKET SUCKS AND I HATE YOU GUYS!
With only 64 slots in four areas, we can't include everything. There is a considered rationale for inclusion and exclusion; we don't do it to piss you off. And remember, this time, you have a say!
Why is [x] in one category but [y] in another?! SUCKS! HATE!
Again: 64 slots; 4 flights of 16 each. We do our best to classify everything correctly within the limits of the bracket structure, but the bracket structure…has limits, and we won't be able to please everyone. Inevitably, some folks will feel like their favorite drink got shanked in the draw, or that we aren't scientific enough, but we encourage you just to have fun with it.
You should absolutely email me if you spot any mistakes, but please understand that "I think your ranking of Buttery Nipples is BULLSHIT!!!1!" is more of a difference of opinion than an error.
Also, you said "nipples." Enjoy that.
I don't drink/usually stick to beer. What's the next bracket?
Probably cookies, if we don't all end up in Hazelden first. By which I mean "especially if we all end up in Hazelden first." In the meantime, the NC Double Shot bracket is here.
