Irreverent blogger and spirits writer Ted Munat might be an East Coast 
native, but his heart (and drinking preferences) lean entirely left.

In the new book Left Coast Libations, Munat and co-author Michael Lazar 
have created a textual treasure map of West Coast cocktail dens, marking 
spots from Vancouver to Los Angeles.

The book addresses this noteworthy cocktail climate by paying due diligence 
to the cognoscenti that are responsible for the region's boozy ascent: 
Portland's Jeffrey Morgenthaler, San Francisco's Neyah White and Seattle's 
Murray Stenson are just a few that make an appearance on the pages.

The 100-plus recipes go further to explore this coastal zeitgeist in a 
collection that ranges from classic cocktails to seasonally driven drinks. 
Some recipes call for homemade ingredients (like smoked ice or orgeat 
syrup), while others require only a quick trip to the store--or your own 
liquor cabinet.

Start by setting your watch to Pacific Standard time, then mix Portland 
bartender Kelley Swenson's Toto, made with tequila, green Chartreuse and 
Cynar (click here to download the recipe

).

Be forewarned: The gross-out factor on this is pretty high. But we admire the resourcefulness of James Gilpin, a diabetic who is producing whiskey from his own distilled urine.
