On a regular basis, the New York Times appears to be turning on fairly respectable and inspiring articles on cocktails and the cocktail culture. Most recently, they took a spin to the other side of the pond and examined the London cocktail scene.
With details and insights from likes of Audrey Saunders, Dale DeGroff, Sasha Petraske, and various others, they pretty much cover the bases as far has where London bartenders are taking their drink repertoire. We never pass up an opportunity to visit London, and after checking out this article, you can probably see why.
You can access the article here: “The Best Town to Make an Upper Lip Stiff”, and you can access a companion photo gallery of many London bars and bartenders here: “Shaken, Stirred and Poured in London”.
