Our latest edition of Fan Fiction is what we might call a two-fer: we’re going to make you a slew of delicious New Orleans-inspired cocktails and simultaneously have a really cool send off for our bar brethren traveling to The Big Easy for Tales of the Cocktail.
For those familiar with Tales — save yourself some syllables with that common abbreviation — you can go ahead and skip to the bottom for the pertinent event details. For everyone else, we’re about to let you in on a little secret: NOLA is most fun when the universe's best bartenders converge for five days of cocktail-centric discussion and celebration. And the Spirited Awards, held under the Tales umbrella, is truly the Oscars of bartending, and it’s an honor just to be nominated! And Chicago has a couple horses in this race:
- Best American Hotel Bar: Sable Kitchen & Bar
- Best New American Cocktail Bar: Three Dots and a Dash
- World’s Best Cocktail Menu: The Aviary
And while we wish all of Chicago could make the trip, we know that’s not going to happen. Instead, we’re offering up the chance to raise a glass in good spirits as we celebrate our friends who are making their way South.
If the hullabaloo of Tales of the Cocktail aren’t enough to pique your interest, how about a menu full of cocktails that celebrate the rich and boozy history of New Orleans?
