Miami was well represented at the tenth anniversary of Tales of the Cocktail. This five-day long celebration of spirits brings the world's best bartenders together -- all shaking their stuff in New Orleans' French Quarter.

Short Order was in the house and we were pleased to meet up with some familiar faces and catch up with what they're doing (and where they're going).

We're hoping these talented mixologists brought back some ideas for new and interesting recipes, and we even gathered a little intel on Miami's drinking scene. (Hint: One of your favorite pop-up bars might just be reappearing sometime soon.) Click through for some photo highlights.
