While celebrity bartenders haven't quite caught up to celebrity chefs in public awareness, their craft is still growing in popularity. John Curtas talks to three of the valley's best-known "mixologists," who discuss some of the details of what they do and what makes a great cocktail. Then they demonstrate with some sample drinks for Mister Curtas!

GUESTS
Jeremy Merritt, Head Bartender, Downtown Cocktail Room
Tony Abou-Ganim, author, The Modern Mixologist: Contemporary Classic Cocktails
Patricia Richards, Cocktail Dir, Wynn/Encore
