Toast to Tréo

“On Fire” for the New Year

SARA ESSEX BRADLY PHOTOGRAPH

By consensus, it seems we are all in agreement about 2016: best left forgotten, for the most part, on the trash heap of history. Maybe down the road in the rear-view mirror it will look better, but the last 12 months, considered right now, were tough.

All the more reason to start 2017 with a commitment to make this New Year a superior year. An “On Fire Year.” We already know it’s going to be a better year for our city as we’re once again a major player on the corporate meetings and convention cycle, which was not the case for the year just passed. And we will be looking forward, preparing, for the celebration of our 300th birthday in ’18.

This year will see the inauguration of non-stop air service direct from our town to at least two world-capital cities in Europe. Once again we will host the NBA All-Star Game, but this time it will be played against the only-in-New Orleans madness of Carnival Season. Also there’s the continued resurgence of neighborhoods that have struggled to come back from years of decline, such as Tulane Avenue.

Tréo on Tulane is contributing art, cuisine, libations and a general good vibe to the street’s comeback. Here is Tréo’s further contribution to assure a good beginning to the New Year.

11/2 ounces Amarás mezcal
3/4 ounce Casoni
1 ounce Manuel Acha Vino Vermouth
2 generous squeezes of Bittermens Habañero Shrub

Stir all ingredients over ice and strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with a flamed orange peel.
