Serious Eats: Drinks covers cocktails and spirits, beer and wine, but that doesn't mean we focus exclusively on the hard stuff. This year, we sought out the best milkshakes in San Francisco, the best smoothies in LA, the best local milk in New York, and subjected ourselves to a series of blind taste tests to find out whether Mexican Coke is really better. Here are our top 10 most popular posts in soda, juice, smoothies, milk, and milkshakes this year, based on unique page visitors. (Don't worry, java fanatics, we'll round up the most popular posts in coffee and tea later this week.)
