If you stop by the bar at Dunville's Restaurant in Westport, Connecticut, you can order a beer and shot, if you want. But the owner there, Stephen Carpentieri might encourage you to be a little more adventurous - maybe ordering a cocktail that combines the flavors of cucumber and lime with a few different kinds of spirits. Carpentieri and his bar are featured in a new documentary, called "Hey Bartender" about the current trend of craft cocktails. The movie follows Carpentieri as he gets swept up in that trend, and WSHU's Craig LeMoult sat down at the bar with him for a drink.
