It’s not much of a contest whenever some challenge arises regarding where in the world the most amped celebrations take place. While New Orleans may not be in the top spot all the time, for sheer numbers of celebrations, and factoring in quality of revelry, we are always near the top of the list.
Holiday season is another shining moment for our city and the let’s-party intensity does not diminish. Not only are we ready to show the world how to properly wrap a celebration in passionate trappings, but we are also in full preparation mode for the just-around-the-corner Carnival season. Excessive? Of course.
Locals and visitors alike have absolutely included on their “Holiday List of Things That Must Be Done,” a visit to the annually stunning Roosevelt Hotel lobby. Family traditions do not come any more beautiful or fun than this.
The Sazerac Bar, immediately adjacent to the seasonally-festive lobby of the Roosevelt Hotel, has created another reason, a calendar correct cocktail, to make a slight detour into the historic watering hole. They named the drink, “Candy Cane.” Simply delicious.
1 ¼ oz. Rumplemintz
¾ oz. light crème de cacao
1 oz. heavy cream
Shake & strain into martini glass lined with raspberry swirl
