Famous cocktails worth a sip

The USA's cocktail heritage is steeped in history, with each sip telling a story of times past. Classic cocktails like the Old Fashioned, the Manhattan, and the Sazerac are not just drinks; they are a piece of history, served in a glass.

These time-honored recipes can be found across the country, from the bustling bars of New York to the laid-back lounges of San Francisco. Whether you prefer the aromatic complexity of a Negroni or the refreshing zing of a Mojito, you will find a classic cocktail that resonates with your taste buds.

The bar scene

The United States is home to an eclectic array of bars, each with its own character and clientele. From the upscale Chandelier Bar on the fourth floor of a posh hotel to the down-to-earth dive bars of East Nashville, there is a space for every mood and moment. In the Magic City of Miami, you can savor Japanese whisky in a sleek, modern setting, or enjoy a casual beer in the festive atmosphere of a New Orleans patio bar.

Iconic Institutions

Certain bars have become landmarks in their own right, etching their names into the country's cultural fabric. The Violet Hour in Chicago, with its bank vault door and speakeasy vibe, whispers tales of the Prohibition era.

Katana Kitten in Manhattan mixes East-meets-West in its drinks and decor, while bars in Midtown West serve cocktails that have become as iconic as the city itself. And let us not forget the historical haunts of New Orleans, where every glass comes with a story.

Learning from the best bar staff

Behind every great bar is an even greater bartender. In cities like New York and San Diego, bar staff elevate mixology to an art form, curating a menu of cocktails that are both delicious and visually stunning.

At these bars, the staff are not just serving drinks; they are creating experiences. With Nova Circle, you can track down the bars where the best drinks are poured and the most knowledgeable bartenders hold court.

Beers and breweries

The United States has witnessed a remarkable beer revolution over the past few decades. Once dominated by a handful of large-scale breweries, today, the U.S. has thousands of breweries, ranging from small, local microbreweries and brewpubs to large, internationally recognized craft breweries. This explosion of craft brewing has introduced a plethora of styles, from hop-heavy IPAs and robust stouts to refreshing sours and complex barrel-aged brews.

Cities like Portland, Denver, San Diego, and Asheville are lauded as craft beer meccas, drawing enthusiasts from all over the world to sample their unique offerings. Seasonal releases, limited edition batches, and beer festivals further fuel the excitement around craft beer, making the culture of American brewing as rich and diverse as the beers themselves.
