Two Sundays ago, we finally got around to making a drink out of the new Left Coast Libations cocktail book that was finally released last month at Tales of the Cocktail. Subtitled "The Art of West Coast Bartending: 100 Original Cocktails," the book does a rather good job portraying the Washington, Oregon, and California craft cocktail scenes through fifty bartenders who each present two recipes. The book is not laden with a lot of hard to find seasonal ingredients like many West Coast recipes are, but includes some of the more modern trends in bitters and spirits with a West Coast flare and a decent respect for the classics.
