Watch a Mixologist Whip Up 100 Years of Drinks in Two Minutes
Long before Carrie Bradshaw sipped Cosmopolitans and James Bond swilled vodka martinis, cocktail enthusiasts savored a range of classic libations: gin martinis, Negronis, and Sazeracs, to name a few. In the above video from Mode, a bartender mixes a century's worth of popular drinks in less than two minutes, highlighting iconic bar offerings from each decade. While brief, the video explores how our tastes have changed—and how they've remained the same—throughout the last 100 years. A history lesson combined with a drinking session? We'll raise our glass to that.
