The United States of Cocktails: Recipes, Tales, and Traditions from All 50 States (and the District of Columbia)
If you like craft cocktails and travel, I highly recommend The United States of Cocktails by Brian Bartels.
The stories about each state and the cocktails were great. We have made several and look forward to making many more. Once we get through this pandemic, I’m looking forward to making signature drinks based on where my guests are from when we have friends over. And if we don’t get through it soon, I’m thinking I may send recipes to friends and set up a zoom happy hour. Our family has a goal of traveling to all fifty states, so we are enjoying reading about the next states and learning a few unique facts about them as we plan. The information is usually food and beverage related but we are foodies, so this is of interest to us and will be fun knowledge to gain in anticipation of our travels. This book would make a great gift for anyone in your life who enjoys cocktails and travel. The only negative that we found was that even with an extensive bar, you will find that you often need to purchase novel ingredients. This can be fun as long as you don’t mind adding to your collection of unique liquors, bitters, etc. Even with that, this is a great book, that we will continue to enjoy.
