Response to What’s Your Home State’s Signature Cocktail?:
That WV drink does not have anything to do with WV other than the fact that it was published in a WV newspaper this year. :( Also, I went to your link for WV, and the drink you described (bourbon, eggs, etc.) is not listed as the Persephone. The Persephone is described as a pomegranate and champagne drink (which makes sense if you know the mythology of Persephone).
I bet you are thinking of Tiny Tim. He does amazing things on ukelele.
