Mixology Defined?

In the umpteenth feature on the world of bartending, a theory on how the job has evolved: "'Ten years ago, they looked at us [bartenders] like we were social rejects. They thought we tend bar because our band never made it, or we're avoiding 9 to 5 jobs because we love to drink and party...and honestly, for a lot of the older bartenders that I've met, that's true,' Meehan says. 'But that's changing.'" So, now only old bartenders are rejects. Younger guys are "mixologists." [Edible Manhattan via Eater NY]
