There are a lot of fun things in the cocktail world happening these days. We have sniffed out a few festive finds for you to try.
Palm & Pine (308 N. Rampart St.) – Each month, the team at Palm & Pine select a new charity and proceeds of their ‘Solidarity Cocktail’ go toward said charity. This month, Beverage Director Kimberly Patton-Bragg created the ‘A Stroll Down Gravier St,’ which is a take on a classic martini, with the proceeds going towards Women With A Vision, since March is Women’s History Month.
The drink is made with local Louisiana strawberry, hibiscus, coriander, basil, Gravier Gin, Lillet Blanc, a dash of Bitter Queens Caribbean Cate bitters and an Herbasint rinsed glass. It is the perfect excuse to head down to Palm & Pine, whether it’s for dinner or Sunday Brunch, have this cocktail and feel good that your money is going to a great cause and empowering women in New Orleans.
