Poll: Do You Order Complicated Cocktails?

Do You Order Complicated Cocktails?

In a discussion with several colleagues, I discovered that, apparently, complicated cocktails are a bit of a love it or hate it thing. While PartySugar and I appreciate the rise of highly nuanced cocktails — like the Grey Lady pictured here — one co-worker begged to differ. "I hate waiting for fancy drinks," he lamented. "I'd just rather order a vodka and cranberry; it has the same effect, anyway."

He has a point: I once waited twenty minutes on a cocktail at The Violet Hour in Chicago — although my drink's multifaceted flavors wound up tasting perfectly balanced in every imaginable way.
