Mark looks at some of the most recent mixology trends, including flavor-infused ice cubes, barrel-aged cocktails, bottled cocktails, cocktails on tap, and—wonder of wonders—the growing realization among bartenders that they need to be just a bit nicer to their customers. Mark examines the Savino, the latest wine preservation gadget. On Bizarre Beverage News, he investigates beer lollipops, the marketing of wine to menopausal women, and the latest battle in trademark infringement: Cartier vs. Carter.
