There are lots of popular or go-to cocktails when you're looking for something to sip. But sometimes you just want something new and fun, right?  Well there is a company that wanted to create a signature cocktail for every state and then take it a step further and see what those cocktails would look like.

They wanted recipes inspired by the flavors, flowers, and fame of every state.  So, they gave all that information to AI's ChatGPT and let it do its (very quick) work of coming up with cocktail recipes for every state.

  • 2 oz Honeycrisp Apple-Infused Bourbon

  • Apple slice & cinnamon stick for garnish

After they got the recipes from ChatGPT, they handed them over to Midjourney for help to  bring their vision to life by visualizing what each of these drinks would look like in real life. According to Wikipedia Midjourney generates images from natural language descriptions, called "prompts", similar to OpenAI's DALL-E and Stability AI's Stable Diffusion.

I'm not going to lie, when I read that recipe, I pictured a hot drink.  So I was surprised when I saw their vision of it as an iced cocktail.

I have to agree that it sounds delicious. Although, I might be biased since I'm a bourbon fan, but I also didn't even know that Honeycrisp infused Bourbon existed?  Or are they saying we need to infuse it?  If so, now it sounds like work.

So, will you try a North Star Honeycrisp Fizz and should it be Minnesota's signature cocktail?
