Nation’s Restaurant News: Bartenders shift to less potent potables
“Adam Monette, managing partner of Flagstaff House in Boulder, Colo., said low-ABV cocktails are a great way to start an evening.
‘They won’t wreak havoc on your taste buds the way higher alcohol items will,’ he said.
The influx of craft vermouths and other high-quality low-alcohol drinks provide new options for bartenders, Monette said, “and I think they show best when not overdone. Adding a base spirit or too many liquors can take away from the subtle flavors.'”
