Slideshow SLIDESHOW: Ask a Bartender: What's the Next Big Trend in Cocktails?

Trends spread across the cocktail world just as they do every other creative field. Ingredients that most drinkers wouldn't have recognized a few years ago—Cocchi Americano? St. Germain?—are now in cocktails all over the country. Housemade syrups and bitters were once a novelty, and now are almost expected in higher-end cocktail bars.

But what's the next big thing in cocktails? We asked 11 bartenders and their answers ranged widely, from specific liqueurs to different techniques to the closer integration of food and drink.

Come see what the bartenders had to say. What do you think is the next big trend in cocktails?
