Fewer and fewer bars are serving such simple concoctions as a vodka and soda – not because they won’t do it, but because there’s less demand. Gone are the two-ingredient cocktails, and in their places are intricate mixtures of specialty liquors, mysterious tinctures, and gourmet garnishes.
While creating these libations is definitely a skill, you don’t have to leave home to enjoy one. With the proper ingredients in your home bar, you could impress guests with cocktails that taste like they were made by the craftiest mixologists.
