New Orleans-based drinks writer Wayne Curtis 

"America's ongoing cocktail revival isn't a single, monolithic scene, but rather a theme park composed of many small villages inhabited by historic reenactors. Faux 19th-century bartenders in sleeve garters and baroque facial hair ply their trade in pre-Prohibition bars. Women wearing cloche hats order sidecars at speakeasies. You can sip daiquiris to a rumba beat in an ersatz Cuban bar, or martinis served by Brylcreemed waiters at a Mad Men-styled lounge."

— New Orleans-based drinks writer Wayne Curtis, writing on cocktail trends in The Atlantic.
