      I was looking for cocktails that included ginger beer so I could use my first batch of homemade (yeast fermented) ginger beer. It's a acquired taste... It grew on me as I was sipping on it, but I've never been a huge fan of Fernet. Picture here: http://egullet.org/p1875957

      The flavor of loquats is like mild apricot, and the limoncello and lime juice accompanied it nicely. And, the pretty orange of the fruit gave the cocktail great color.

Publishers Text

This ultimate guide to American cocktails collects more than fifty drink recipes from across the U.S., spanning five distinct regions (the South, the Northeast, the Midwest, the West, and the West Coast). Each recipe comes from one of America's top bartenders, and includes a bit of history on the cocktail as well as information about the unique ingredients that go into it. The drinks are both classic and contemporary, often putting a fresh and modern twist on an iconic heritage drink, and each is a sophisticated, artisan recipe that emphasises the art of the cocktail.
