Where Bartenders Drink
Over the past ten years, the cocktail scene has exploded around the globe. In some ways it's easy to see why: once you’ve tasted a great cocktail, you never go back.

Once there were only a handful of bars where you could get a proper Manhattan, now New York teems with them-and so do London and Paris, Tokyo and Singapore, Melbourne and Buenos Aires.

Even more excitingly, great cocktail bars are no longer only a thing of metropolitan cities, they’re cropping up in small towns and out-of-the-way places at a high rate. Slowly but surely the Old Fashioned has gone back to being a boozy whiskey drink instead of a fruit salad. Manhattans are stirred, not shaken. The Negroni has become a cocktail menu staple. People are rediscovering all kinds of spirits and liqueurs, and inventing new ones. It’s an exciting time to be a discerning drinker.
