Smaller Drinks Means You Can Have More of Them

Someone wrote on Facebook that a trend they'd like to see is smaller cocktails so they could enjoy a larger range of drinks over an evening. I also think that would be pretty cool, so I asked PR folks and Facebook folks if they knew of any.

If your bar is doing mini cocktails, feel free to add them in the comments!
