Meh, that's the part I'm not sure about yet. For example, right now, I might have a cocktail under a heading of "Summer Favorites," but maybe it's so good that in October, I remove the "Summer Favorites" group but move that cocktail to the "House Specials" group instead. Or something. Haven't quite fleshed out the idea yet.

Actually, now that I type that out loud, it gets me thinking that I should probably just make some sort of Group/Category model and render cocktails grouped by Category. Less hard-coding, reasonably easy to implement. Not sure. I seem to have gotten off track from my original question, but I feel like I've got several good options to go forward with.

Yep! You can also just have a category field for them if category has no other associated metadata.

Ooh good point. Hm. OK I have some thinking to do. Thank you for your help!
