New Orleans lays claim to so many things—jazz, Mardi Gras, festivals, and food—so it makes perfect sense that the Big Easy would be the home of the first cocktail. After all, libations are a New Orleans custom. In this brilliantly photographed book, Kit Wohl has compiled more than sixty luscious beverage recipes, both traditional and eccentric, from the city’s legendary and quirky establishments.
From highfalutin to down home, New Orleans’s bartenders take great pride in their art. Included in this compilation are well-crafted concoctions designed for lazy afternoons, for before or after meals, for cocktail parties, or for topping off an evening. Sip and savor a Sazerac, Absinthe Suissesse, Pimm’s Cup, Obituary Cocktail, and dozens more with the help of this collection. The latest addition to the Classics Series, this compilation provides recipes and techniques paired with the inspiration behind each drink. All infusions are home-tested with the nonprofessional mixologist in mind.
