Connections: Cocktails Making A Comeback

There's a cocktail revival happening around the country, and Rochester happens to be a strong player in the movement. Sazaracs are in. Barrel-aged Manhattans can be found. And a group of local restaurants and bars are teaming up for a weekend of cocktail-themed events, from tastings to classes on the proper use of bitters. We meet the cocktail-slinging barhands behind this effort: 

Chuck Cerankosky / Good Luck and Cure restaurants

Jon Karel / The Revelry restaurant

Evy Fanning / Cheshire
