Ladies and gentlemen, pull up a stool and settle in for a week of cocktail obsession. From this moment until Friday evening, we'll be sharing maps, interviews, and lots more, shining a light on Boston's thriving cocktail scene.
Some of Boston's best bartenders will be sharing their thoughts on topics near and dear to their hearts, from the history of chartreuse to the classification of glassware. Bars and restaurants around town will offer a special seasonal drink, specifically created for Cocktail Week. Maps will point you in the direction of hot cocktails, veggie-filled cocktails, giant cocktails meant for sharing, iconic cocktail bars, and more.
Follow along on this page, which also includes an archive of previous Cocktail Week content. (We'll be highlighting some of our old favorites from earlier years later this week.) Or keep an eye on the Twitter hashtag #CocktailWeek2015 for updates in Boston and beyond.
At any point, feel free to hop into the Eater Boston forum to share your cocktail thoughts, whether you want to rave about a favorite bartender or let everyone in on your favorite off-menu secret. (Don't forget to tell us about bartenders working at new restaurants/bars — no more than a year old — who should be on our radar for a 2015 Eater Award.)
