    I wholly agree with you too. These traditional cocktails have been mixed and poured a certain way for many years for one simple reason. They work! I believe the art of the cocktail has been lost, or in the very least muddled, so much so that many establishments are poor concerned with being edgy then basing a drink menu with basics that work. The only thing left for us to do now is open our own bar.

    I am in total support of the idea of going back to basics. That is the approach I have had for all bars that I have worked for . Too many bars try to distinguish themselves by altering certain recipes that are in many people's mind perfect already. It goes back to the old saying, "If it ain't broke don't fix it." I have been serving my drinks "naked" trying to make them as perfect as possible which results in an amazing experience. I truly hope all my fellow bartenders begin to partake in this idea.
