"When you go into really innovative bars today, the envelope is being pushed again. We're looking at artisanal cocktails with herbs, and egg whites are a given. Just as chefs are being intensely creative and heritage-oriented, but also forward-looking- I think that's a trend in cocktail-making, as well." [19:10]
