It’s not enough to have your favorite drinks. The bar should also offer some new and innovative ones, combining flavors that you wouldn’t imagine going together—such as Jasmine green tea and handcrafted Olmeca Altos tequila made with 100 percent agave. Yes, you are a creature of habit and take comfort in the fact that your drink will be served exactly the way you want it—every time. That said, when you're feeling adventurous, you need a bartender who you can trust. Ask them to surprise you. Let them know you trust their judgment. A creative bartender is one you can count on to know exactly what type of drink you’ll need in different situations—from a promotion to a breakup.
