Mike Henderson, Root Down

Maintaining a cool head at one of Denver’s hottest drinking spots is no easy task, which is why we look for Mike Henderson when we belly up to the bar—and our readers do too. This guy has some serious skills, and never fails to serve up perfectly mixed concoctions: Try his tangy blood orange Caipirinha. What we especially dig is his dedication to sharing the craft of mixology: If he’s not wowing the masses at Root Down, check out Stir Bar, the full-service bar inside the newish Stir Cooking School in Highland, where Henderson teaches mixology courses ($55 to $75) such as Cocktails at Home and Professional Bartending. We love a guy who shares his secrets. 1600 W. 33rd Ave., 303-993-4200, rootdowndenver.com
