If you enjoy the occasional cocktail, you may be interested in a unique New Orleans walking tour offered by Gray Line: the New Orleans’ Original Cocktail Tour. This tour is a wonderful way to orient yourself to the city and some of its most prominent restaurants and bars. By the end of the tour, you’ll know which establishments you want to visit again during your New Orleans Bed and Breakfast vacation.
Every cocktail has a history – who first created it, where it was first consumed, when it became popular. Mixologists such as Dale DeGroff and Gary Regan have devoted their careers not only to preparing the finest cocktails, but to uncovering their fascinating histories. You can read about the New Orleans’ cocktails, or you can experience them first hand: the News Orleans’ Original Cocktail Tour brings the history of certain cocktails to life.
Pimm’s Cup, the Hurricane, the Sazerac, and the Hand Grenade – visit the bars where they were first concocted and hear entertaining stories about their origins. The New Orleans’ Original Cocktail Tour will bring you behind the scenes and into the wine cellars of some of the oldest and most respected establishments in the city.
True cocktail aficionados may want to attend Tales of the Cocktail 2011, July 20 – 24; it’s not too early to book rooms in Bed and Breakfasts New Orleans for this event.
