Video: The Cocktail Issue
The February issue of Buffalo Spree is all about modern cocktails. It may surprise you, because not all of our region knows that Buffalo's burgeoning cocktail scene is one worth championing. Quality ingredients, classic techniques, and a flair for complex, well-balanced palate pleasing beverages are what make today's talented barkeeps a cut above the old dump and stir "plastic cup" bartenders we've become accustomed to.
BuffaloSpree.com video director Chris Gallant shares his afternoon with Jon Karel, our February issue's coverguy and the very passionate bar manager at Vera. Karel shows us improved versions of two classic cocktails, the margarita and the good old Manhattan.
Pick up the latest issue of Spree to read more about Karel and our region's growing cocktail renaissance.
