If there weren’t so much grog involved, our upcoming visit to New Orleans would come perilously close to looking like work. (Man, we don’t even like typing that word.)
In addition to making drinks for the Pelican Club’s tiki dinner on February 22, and our book signing the next day at the Metairie Borders, a third event has just been added to our itinerary. On Monday the 25th, we’ll be at the Old New Orleans Rum distillery from 5 PM to 7 PM, shaking up two tropical cocktails we’ve created especially for the evening.
If you attend Friday’s dinner or Saturday’s book signing, admission to the Monday distillery event is free. If not, the cost is $10 — but that includes unlimited cocktails, plus a rum tasting, as well as hearty Creole food to accompany your booze. And if that’s not enough, they’re even throwing in a master distiller tour.
If you hate Mondays, this event is for you. But take care: if you sample as much of Old New Orleans’ fine rum as we plan to, you’ll end up hating Tuesday even more!
