The opening of Grant Achatz's upcoming Next restaurant and Aviary bar must be getting closer because they're doing trial runs of the cocktails for small groups. In the video below, Aviary's Craig Schoettler demos two (three?) cocktails. The first is a combination: guests are given a carbonated Negroni and a White Lady, which they can either drink separately or combine them and "it'll do something kind of cool." The other is their take on a Moscow Mule: the customer gets a glass full of ginger ice and a sidecar and stirs the two together with a lemongrass swizzle stick.
