New Orleans: Early Evening Cocktail History Tour

Your night of cultured imbibing begins as evening arrives in the French Quarter.

Your second visit will be to SoBou, a local favorite that’s part of the acclaimed Commander’s Palace family. There, try the classic Sazerac, a recipe attributed to a Creole apothecarist in the 19th Century – when cocktails constituted as medicine!

We’ve done many cocktail tours in NOLA….this one was by far the best. We enjoyed the drinks, but our hostess shared things we had never heard on other cocktail tours. Her knowledge of libations, history and the city are second to none. Take this tour - you won’t regret it!

Beth was so awesome! She is so knowledgeable! We had a great time. It is an excellent way to learn cool things from the city, and enjoy amazing drinks. cheers! best thing to do this. Glad we did! thanks Beth!
