A Map of Signature Cocktails by US State

Signature Cocktail by State

Every state in the U.S. has its own flag, its own flower, its own animal and its own motto, so why not its own cocktail? Hannah C Gregg of BuzzFeed has compiled a delicious menu of suggested cocktails delineated by state.

America boasts an almost endless array of liquor, making the choice of one signature cocktail for each state a tricky task. But every state gets tipsy in its own special way, and we chose these cocktails with some semblance of logic: a combination of state of origin, popularity, and exclusivity.

Here are just a few:
