Historically, bartenders have not been the creative faces of the restaurant industry. They were employed to pour shots, crack open cans, stir, shake and maybe even provide a listening ear. But during the past decade, the demand for craft cocktails surged, prompting restaurants to invest in larger bar space and elite beverage programs. While demand for bespoke beverages has never been higher, the profitability of these drinks has one local bartender wondering why their creators see less of the rewards. He joins a panel of food writers to discuss why.
