Here are two nice videos about the Cognac Summit 2010, the event which was from 17th to 20th in January 2010, organised by the BNIC. This “Think Tank” event gathers bartenders and -owners from all over the world. Basically the mixologists “pimped up” existing cocktails and adapted them to modern consumer expectations, such as the Stinger, Collins, Alexander, Mojito, Side Car etc.
