    It was spring in 1840, when New Orleans was queen city of the Mississippi River, when cotton was king and French gentlemen settled their differences under the oaks with pistols for two and coffee for one. “Dixie” had not yet been written, destined to become the marching anthem for Confederate forces in the Civil War. This was the city young Antoine Alciatore adopted, after stopping in New York, to establish a restaurant that would endure under his family’s direction for more than 180 years and set the standard that has made New Orleans one of the great dining centers of the world.

Great way to get introduced to some very unique drinks and learn about New Orleans' and the drinks' history - During my bachelor party in New Orleans, we decided to attend Tastebud Tours' Cocktail/Prohibition tour. It ended up being possibly our favorite experience of the whole weekend with multiple friends of mine now wanting to take their significant others on the same tour when they come back to NOLA. Our tour guide, Suzette, was a wealth of knowledge on all New Orleans history and the drinks themselves at each of the unique places we went to. We had an absolute blast and I really cannot recommend the tour enough.
