    Thanks for the link to the article Ed. Looks like the word is slowly spreading. Joe

    Re: Nice Article in the NY Post

    Reading that article prompted a thought I've never had before: it might be nice to live in New York -- if only for the bourbon bars.

    Do people really buy $15 cocktails there?

    "And while the care that goes into today's serious bourbon collections owes much to the craft cocktail movement..."

    What did the author mean by that? I don't see that as being true at all.

    $15 cocktails are not uncommon.
    I've learned to ask before purchasing.
    I had a martini in Nyack recently for $12 bucks. Top Shelf gin but not worth it.
    Had a better martini around the block, two for 1 Happy Hour, same Gin, $6.
    Going back to an old thread by Chuck, it seems that drink prices are tied to menu prices and snob appeal. If its a fancy joint, expect to pay more for the drinks and the baked potato.

    Re: Nice Article in the NY Post

    On the point about cocktails, I think there is some link between the enhanced interest in cocktails and interest in fine bourbon (and other spirits). But I don't think they are directly connected. They are connected only in the sense that interest in all matters of fine food and drink has increased in recent years. True, the desire to offer a broad range of cocktails will inspire interest in better booze, but I don't think it goes much beyond that. If people are interested mainly in single malt, or fine bourbon, they tend to stick to that; ditto for the cocktail people.
