Wine snobs are so 90s. Even hard core oenophiles don’t live and die by vintages as often as they did in the 80s and 90s. Now, drinkers are more likely to be cocktail snobs: the ice has to be clear (or round); the bitters must be housemade. I find the trend refreshing in every sense of the word. Since the Dallas cocktail scene is currently en feugo, I think we can help this poor girl. Here is her call to action.

Nancy, I hope you can post this on your blog because I really need some guidance here. I have some friends coming from San Francisco and they want to hit some real cocktail bars. They love to find new concoctions when they travel. Can your readers help me find some of the most unusual drinks in town? Not necessarily the best bars, but the best cocktail?
