There are very few countries that have as a variety of drinking traditions as the United States. While many like to think that the U.S. is a homogeneous culture from coast to coast, they are overlooking the fact that the country is filled with little pockets that each has a distinctive way of imbibing their favorite tipple. Whether it is the near ubiquity of the Brandy Old-Fashioned in Wisconsin or the Picon Punch in Nevada, this week’s guest has travelled across the U.S. to document and record the country’s most unique drinking habits. So tune in as we sit down with Brian Bartels, the author of United States of Cocktails, and talk about the most interesting traditions that he has discovered on his travels.
