Not many people realize this, but the craft cocktail, and craft cocktail lounge are seen as relatively “new” trends in our society, their roots and inception can be seen as early as the 1600’s, and possibly earlier, with what may have been an accidental discovery by explorers and sailors transporting alcohol in barrels. The oak mellowed the liquor, which made the liquor more palatable. Eventually, concoctions were crafted into morning hangover medicines, and this trend ultimately evolved through a couple of stages until it became an evening indulgence. We can talk about the history another time. For now, let’s fast-forward to today.
