If you're looking for a quality cocktail, Food & Wine says there are three bars in the Twin Cities where you can get some of the best in the country.

The magazine has released its list of America's 39 best cocktail bars, and interspersed between the high-end New York, New Orleans and Los Angeles watering holes are three found in Minneapolis.

Eat Street Social, off Nicollet in southwest Minneapolis, is the first to appear in the list, with Food & Wine finding its "Of the Older Fashioned" tipple – made from three of the bar's own Cherry bark vanilla, orange and Bolivar bitters – worthy of mention.

Nearby Coup d'Etat on Girard Avenue South in Uptown is next, with the magazine noting its menu of original cocktails and "reinvented classics" like its Smoked Manhattan can be found at the "vast, 9,000-square-foot restaurant and bar."

Flying the flag for downtown Minneapolis is Constantine, on 2nd Avenue South, the subterranean bar that is given a "dramatic look" by its stained glass and "160 candles."

Food & Wine says the bar's drinks "embrace the theatrical" as well, with barman Jesse Held "experimenting with infusions and even creating an 'ice program' with different styles and flavors."
