The results are in, and ready to be poured out!
With over 100 respondents to our poll, the two clear-cut winners emerged early on and effectively ran away with the contest.
Here are the “also-ran” entrants from this year’s crop of libations:
|Brooklyn’s 21 Elephants||3||3%|
|The Coney Island Steeplechaser||8||7%|
|Carnegie Melon Ball||12||10%|
|Curse of the Bambino||11||10%|
|The King’s Two Toddies||11||10%|
|Needs More Proof||17||15%|
|Last Call at Tammany Hall||21||18%|
Keeping things interesting was our first runner-up:
|History from the Bottoms-Up||39||34%|
And now onto our two winners!
Proving that historians love a classic cocktail:
|The Manhattan Project||44||38%|
|The Return of Martini Guerre||48||42%|
The final breakdown of the voting looks like this (Finalists listed alphabetically):
So congratulations to our two winning beverages! And cheers to Julia Irwin, associate professor of history at the University of South Florida, who is clearly in a league of her own. This year’s top three voted entrants were all a product of her historical mind, in addition to last year’s winner, “Ryes of American Democracy.” We look forward to seeing her in New York to celebrate her contributions to the annual meeting.
