The holidays give us a great opportunity to spend time with friends and family that we may not get to see throughout the year.

Going out for a drink is a fun way to spend some time together.  When you're looking for a good drink, where do you go?

What bar or restaurant mixes the best drinks in Grand Rapids?

Grand Rapids has no shortage of amazing breweries.  That has been proven over and over with breweries like Founders and Brewery Vivant gaining national attention.

But what about mixed drinks?  Who has the best cocktails in town?

Kellie Rowland at the JW Marriott has been earning awards for her skills as a mixologist and there are many other talented mixologists in Grand Rapids.

There's a lot that goes into a good drink, but what makes it good depends on what you are looking for.

Do you want a creative and original drink?  A classic mixed to perfection?  Or maybe a little of both...a new twist on an old drink.

Whatever drink you're after, it's important that it is made consistently and as you order it.

My favorite place in town for a mixed drink, The Viceroy, closed a couple of months ago.  I'm looking for a new favorite.
