Bartenders are reviving classic cocktails with modern techniques and local liquors.

New-Fangled Old-Fashioned At New York's American Cut, bartenders first fill the glasses for their old-fashioneds with the aromatic smoke from a scorched maple plank.

Cocktails for a Crowd Classic cocktails like Manhattans, Negronis and Boulevardiers are served in bottles for up to five people to share at Portland, Oregon's Tasty n Alder.

Locavore Liquors Atsby vermouth, distilled near the southern tip of Manhattan, and Brooklyn-made Greenhook Gin shake up the Local martini at Costata in New York.

Barrel-Aged Spirits Barrel-aged gin from local distillery Batch 206 lends a woodsy note to the gimlet at Miller's Guild in Seattle.

Olives with a Twist Guests choose either pepper Jack or Maytag blue cheese to stuff the olives garnishing Boston Chops' martinis.
