It's that time of the year again. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls over the age of 21, ready your livers and hang on to your hats. We're kicking off Cocktail Week 2013 across the Eater Universe today, which means that the week will be jam-packed with cocktail-related interviews, maps, guides, and more. Later today you'll be introduced to a number of bars and restaurants around town that are offering a special drink in conjunction with Eater's Cocktail Week. Over the next few days, drink professionals across the city will confess their own "embarrassing" preferences with you, share gripes about the industry, and let you in on their secret hidden gems. By the end of the week, you will know where to find the best daiquiri, which new cocktail bars you need to visit immediately, and how best to cure the vilest hangover.
To kick off the week, please leave a comment below nominating your favorite local mixologist/bartender/creator of cocktails. Over the course of the week, we'll whittle the field down through daily polls, and on Friday evening, we'll crown* the king or queen of Cocktail Week on Eater Boston.
Be sure to hit up the tipline if you've got any cocktail-related stories or intel to share. Welcome to Cocktail Week 2013!
