The State of the Great American Cocktail address

It's July 4. We're celebrating our nation's independence and purposefully putting aside our serious civic discussions. Today, we want to relax, enjoy family and friends and celebrate. And since much of America enjoys mixing that celebration with a fine adult beverage or two, we thought we would once again turn to our local experts cocktails and beers, Seth Allen and Nigel Woodbury. Seth, the owner of Libations & Co., is an amateur historian, avid reader and darn good bartender (despite his lack of a tuxedo.) Nigel is, as proclaimed by hosts Nick Parker and Jason Norbury, the ambassador of downtown Lee's Summit night life. Join us this week for a discussion on the state of the great American cocktail and a look at our favorite summer beverages.

Note: The Taco Review Board will return next week.
