Cocktail Recipe: Nostalgia Updated and Savored

Sara Essex Bradley Photograph

One of the most popular features of this magazine, besides this one, of course, is the Julia Street column where questions are asked and answers are provided about all matters New Orleans.

Those of us madly in love with this town, or at any given moment just mad at it, are happy to know about times past in this most fascinating place. We don’t just like nostalgia; we revel in it.  

And we keep reinventing it. The (re)birth of the Loyola streetcar line is an example of our desire to move forward while respecting the past. It even sloshes over into our drinking selections. New is good and pleasurable, but what is the beverage based on?

With the new streetcar line comes a new drink, “A Streetcar Named Loyola,” from a rebirthed place, the Hyatt Hotel, in a bar named after an historic Canal Street movie house, Vitascope Hall.
 


A Streetcar Named Loyola

1 1/2    ounces Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka
1/2    ounce white ginger syrup
1/2    ounce lemon juice
1/4    ounce St. Germain
Ginger ale
Peychaud’s Bitters
Rosemary sprig for garnish

Build in a rocks glass fill with ice. Top with ginger ale.

Garnish with 8 drops of Peychaud’s Bitters and a sprig of rosemary.

Thank you to the bar staff at Vitascope Hall located in the Hyatt Regency Hotel located right on the Loyola Streetcar line.
