In this week's Press Pass, WBFO's Mark Scott and Buffalo Spree Editor Elizabeth Licata are talking cocktails!  They're taking a break from the weighty issue of preservation to have some fun with this month's Buffalo Spree cover story.

Elizabeth brought in a bag filled with the makings for a traditional Manhattan.  But before she started mixing, we asked where in Buffalo you can find a good cocktail.

Plus, Elizabeth has information on the tools you need at home to prepare the perfect cocktail.  She'll explain why bitters are so important.  And Elizabeth will share her opinion about what she thinks is responsible for the resurgence in the cocktail.  

Finally, Mark  and Elizabeth savor a tasty Manhattan.  Wish you were with us for that!
