Weâ€™re not talking about those liquor-and-a-mixer type drinks here. The team of mixologists behind the Courtesy Bar, a craft-cocktail gem along North Orange Avenue in downtown Orlando, shake and stir up some of the most creative alcoholic concoctions weâ€™ve found in the city. They even put their own twist (sometimes literally) on the classics: You might find brandy-soaked cherries in your Manhattan or a house-made jalapeĂ±o pickle garnishing your Betty Ford Bloody Mary. And because tasting only goes so far, the barâ€™s semimonthly cocktail class gives patrons a shot at becoming the bartender for a night, while learning the history and the techniques that go into making three different handcrafted cocktails â€“ the Old Fashioned, Martinez and Sailor Mule. Get ready to shake, muddle and pour, and then enjoy a few rounds after your labor. And because nobody likes drinking alone, word to the wise: If you can gather six or more friends, the bar offers group discount deals. â€“ Aimee Vitek
