Orlando Craft Cocktail Culture

BRussell | Jun 22, 2012 07:08 AM

I'm an Orlando local who loves craft cocktails. Half my vacation budget goes to visiting the country's bigger mixology spots. As I'm sure many of you know, the cocktail scene in Orlando is just beggining to grow.

I'm aware that one can grab a good drink at The Ravenous Pig, Luma and a couple of others but I'm hoping that that there might be some dedicated bars in the area that might get a bit more adventerous. Maybe genever, egg whites, niche amaros etc. If Tampa can support these sorts of bars we should be able to.

So I have two questions.

1.Does anyone know of any plans to open a dedicated craft cocktail bar in the area?

2. Is there any association, club, webring etc. uniting those of us who love cocktails and want to enjoy them with friends? I'm tired of whining about the low quality of drinking in our city. I'd rather work on improving it.
