What you'll do

We’ll meet in the most iconic spot in New Orleans, Jackson Square. From here, the best and most historic bars of The French Quarter are all within a stone’s throw. We will travel back in time and visit a bar which used to entertain some of the most eccentric characters in New Orleans history. Here, we will taste a famous drink of the city and learn how the city started. It’s no surprise New Orleans has a wide range of delicious cocktails, and next on this tour, we will visit one of my favorites and taste a drink so good you’ll forget there’s alcohol in it. We’ll then sample the ‘official cocktail of New Orleans’: the Sazerac. One of the first cocktails ever invented, we will also touch upon the topic of how medicine influenced cocktails, too. From here, we will taste another New Orleans invention, while exploring some of the oldest bars and restaurants in the French Quarter. Last but not least, we will visit one of the classiest establishments in New Orleans to try one of the city’s most esteemed drinks, the Ramos Gin Fizz. You’ll learn why this drink is original to New Orleans and witness the craft in it. Please note quantity we will consume. Some portions are shared.

Where you'll be

We get access to a legendary restaurant to look around before it opens its doors for dinner and step back in time to the beginnings of our favorite festival. We’ll also get a peek into a courtyard oasis, a stunning hidden feature that makes these FQ buildings special, giving well-known customers a classy room to drink in, hidden away from plain sight.
