As if we didn't already have enough options in NYC, we were treated to a handful of excellent new bars in 2013, all capable of serving us drinks that didn't end with the word "tonic" or "soda." These bars not only embrace the depth of cocktail culture in NYC, but govern it as well. Thanks to these spots, we remembered that it's more important to drink well than drink a lot (we did both), so we've rounded up our favorite new NYC cocktail bars of 2013.
