Probably the classics — Martini , Old Fashioned , Manhattan — being drunk by a group of dudes, probably all wearing Brooks Brothers suits, probably all putting the tab on their expense s. But steakhouse drinks are classics for a reason. They are time-tested, easy to make, and they usually taste really good. Across the country, steakhouses are diversifying their menus , offering international fare like sushi and Greek lamb stew alongside traditional porterhouses and Caesar sal. Cocktail lists are likewise expanding, showcasing increasingly complicated and modern creations.

One factor driving the change in steakhouse cocktail menus is the overall atmosphere becoming less testosterone-fueled. The other part of the equation is the rise of cocktail culture due to the efforts of people like Dale DeGroff, and the boom in high-end craft spirits from small distilleries in virtually every corner of the country. People just became a lot more interested in what they were drinking. In order to appeal to changing tastes and demographics without alienating the navy-suited brigades, many steakhouses thoughtfully update the classics.

And D. At next-generation and old-school steakhouses, most people stay faithful to the tried and true. Schneider reports that Vodka Martinis are still really popular. The innovation is in the details. An Old Fashioned barrel-aged for six months with a puff of cedar smoke is all well and good; but ultimately, people want what they want, and like what they like. Like ing a conga line at a wedding, some phenomena only make sense in certain surroundings.

Sipping a crystal-clear Martini before sinking your teeth into a bloody hunk of meat might not be the most logical pairing; but in the mahogany-paneled confines of a white-napkin steakhouse, it just works. Bartenders and beverage directors are wise to develop interesting cocktails for a new generation of steakhouse diners. Those with discerning palates might prefer to pair their sustainably sourced ribeyes with a better-made Manhattan, Japanese whisky Old Fashioned, or Martini with craft gin. In any case the classics, like Caesar dressing , reign supreme.

At this Manhattan institution, housed in an green-and-white building, white-jacketed waiters add stars to their pockets for every five years of service. This Chicago steakhouse recently opened in Las Vegas and offers a fleet of Old Fashioneds made with international and craft spirits. This version features Hibiki Harmony, a Japanese whisky.
