In case you haven't noticed, there's a major cocktails renaissance that's in full swing, and that’s great news for fans of mixed drinks. But, just because there seems to be a cocktail bar on every street corner of every major city in the country from Bar Harbor to Beverly Hills, that doesn’t mean that you can’t still order a classic like an Old Fashioned, Negroni or Manhattan without feeling self-conscious.
Bartenders are more than willing to make you famous drinks that have been around for decades. Heck, even order a White Russian (if you’re feeling like being a real Lebowski) or Harvey Wallbanger if you’re feeling squirrelly. They won’t judge you (well, they might but, who really cares, right?)
For those who are feeling a little more adventurous, bartenders from coast-to-coast have created cocktails to appeal to any whiskey-loving (or tequila, mezcal, or and other spirits), red-blooded man. And because we enjoy good cocktails, we had to share some of the best cocktails recipes from some of of the top bars from around the country.
