Angèle in Northern California’s Napa Valley is where locals go for satisfying French fare, but the restaurant’s creative cocktails, including this Kumquat Caipirinha, are not to be missed.

What to buy: Cachaça, a sugarcane-derived spirit with a 500-year history, can be found at most well-stocked liquor stores.
