For a drink geek, one of the great joys of drinking at Liberty is guessing where the glassware comes from. Often, your cocktail or bourbon pour is served in a collins glass or other vessel that, in its previous life, was a whiskey or gin bottle.
I asked Liberty bar owner Andrew Friedman to show me how that’s done. And I brought Video Producer Genevieve Alvarez along to film Friedman cutting his bottles. He used the bottoms as cocktail glasses. And the leftover bottle tops are reused as light fixtures and chandeliers.
