We love our wine bars in these parts. And we love our craft beer breweries too. But we have a special kind of love for cocktails—sometimes we just have to bow down at the altar of some of our most gifted bartenders in the country and respect what they can do with some bottles, a shaker, some ice and a little garnish. Here, bartenders from some of the best bars in the country—from the best bars in New York to L.A. and in between—give us their recipes for classic cocktails. Plus, we've got the best bars to get those cocktails and everything else you could want to know about the art of mixing, shaking, stirring and then drinking it all down.
