I just confirmed my plans to attend the Tales of the Cocktail event this weekend in New Orleans.
It’s a five-day event featuring award-winning mixologists, authors, bartenders, chefs and designers — all taking place in the New Orleans French Quarter. Also part of the event are dinner pairings, cocktail demos and tastings, seminars and mixing competitions.
It will be my first time to attend this relatively new event, and I look forward to learning more about what many describe as an American renaissance of the cocktail.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
