2015 Top 10 Drinks

Resort Baja

Rancho Pescadero is my favorite Baja California Sur getaway. Great cocktails are a bonus.

Every Friday, Drink of the Week celebrates my favorite beverage from the previous 7 days. I live in Los Angeles, an epicenter for cocktails, craft beer and coffee. I was also fortunate enough to travel to Baja California del Sur, Hawaii (Maui and Oahu), San Diego and San Francisco. Along the way, I took dozens of stupendous sips. Discover my 2015 Top 10 Drinks, which appear in order of preference.
