New Orleans Cocktails Unraveled

In The Pour, a column by Eric Asimov in today's New York Times, Asimov writes: "I've been trying to figure out the logic of the Louisiana legislature, which, apparently having finished its work with the Hurricane Katrina cleanup, has moved on to the pressing business of selecting an official cocktail for the City of New Orleans."

Mr. Asimov apparently does not closely follow how many state legislative bodies operate. He does, however, provide an interesting discussion of the sazerac and Ramos gin fizz; recipes are included for those folks looking for a cocktail to help beat the heat and humidity today.

Wisconsin's official state beverage is milk.
