Eben Freeman's Greatest Hits; Tequila and You

What's interesting in the world of tipples this week:

Eben Freeman, the man behind the drink program at the Butterfly, Michael White's restaurant opening this summer in Soho, is planning a greatest-hits cocktail menu for the bar, reports Diner's Journal. It would include drinks he conjured up while working at a number of New York City's hottest restaurants, including wd~50.

How did bitters come to "occupy a curious niche in the history of food and drinks, especially given their early history as patent medicines with rather dubious reputations"? Food & Think has the answer.

SFGate has pics of six Napa Valley wineries that make both wine and architectural statements.

The Awl lays out how to make hard apple cider: "Simply put, do nothing."

At Zagat Buzz, what your tequila drink says about you.
