Cocktails: New Orleans Special Edition

Read about this challenge and see the list here

Part of the fun of going to New Orleans is to sample their unique foods and drinks. I was able to check 4 drinks off my list and 2 bonus ones. These are all specialty cocktails known for the area and I couldn’t skip trying them

Daiquiri
Ingredients: (from the list)light rum, lime juice, sugar (blended) / (how they made it) blended, different flavored mixes
Drank on: October 2015
Location: the first one was at Melba’s in New Orleans
Notes: you can get “to go” cups and walk around on the street with them. And someplaces have drive-thrus for them.

Gin Fizz “Governor Huey P Long’s Favorite”
Ingredients: (from the list) gin, lemon juice, powdered sugar, water / (how they made it) gin, citrus, cream, egg whites, sugar, orange flower water, shaken until frothy and topped with club soda
Drank on: October 2015
Location: The Sazerac Bar in the Roosevelt Hotel, New Orleans
Notes: (guide book mentioned this was the place to go for a gin fizz and it was very yummy, I had a sip or two from my friend’s drink, the sazerac is on the left, the bubbly in the middle, and the gin fizz on the right)

Hurricane
Ingredients: light rum, dark rum, passionfruit, oj, lime, simple syrup, grenadine
Drank on: October 2015
Location: Pat O’Briens, New Orleans
Notes: (they are known for their hurricanes, and you can purchase their special mix) we drank these while in the piano bar room.

Zombie
Ingredients: lemon juice, dark rum, orange juice, cherry brandy, light rum, grenadine
Drank on: October 2015
Location: one of the bars on Burbon Street, New Orleans
Notes: friend and I dressed as Zombies and I knew I had to have this drink as a zombie. The bartender had to look at the ingredient listed here but he was game to make it. I wasn’t sure how it would taste with all the stuff, but it’s dangerously yummy. This is a drink that will sneak up and smack you or make you into a drunken, dumb zombie.

Bonus:
Pimm’s Cup
Ingredients: British Gin based liquor & lemonade, splash of lemon-lime soda & garnished with a cucumber
Drank on: October 2015
Location: Napoleon House, New Orleans

#186 – Have a truly amazing one-night stand

This was an item I wasn’t sure I’d ever post about, much less have a photo to share with you all. But I was with a guy in New Orleans and it was amazing!

Halloween in New Orleans was so much fun.
