Some Visual Cocktail History

Global cocktail historyEver wonder where some enterprising person created a particular cocktail?  Thanks to Vinepair, you can now look at a map (click here to see it).  An extra special thanks goes to my wife for telling me about this.

Some things on the map will come as no surprise to the cocktail novice, e.g. the birthplace of the Manhattan, or the cocktail enthusiast, e.g. the number of cocktails such as the Sazerac that originated in New Orleans (it's no accident that this unique city is host to the Tales Of The Cocktail conference).  However, other things may be in dispute.  For example, if you're in Chile I wouldn't tell the locals that the Pisco Sour comes from Peru.

So look at the map and go travel around the cocktail world!
