[PAID EVENT] A Cocktail History of New Orleans Walking Tour

  • Saturday – 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
  • Lobby | Sheraton
  • #ONA19Tour

Among the many treats visitors may find in New Orleans is a rich cocktail history. The Sazerac and Hurricane (yes, seriously) were both invented here, along with numerous other famous and delicious drinks.

Experience the French Quarter's most famous landmarks while you hear about the people who gave the city its rich character and sip on the drinks that carry their stories. Notable stops along the way include the Pharmacy Museum, Jackson Square, St. Louis Cathedral, and the Port of New Orleans. The tour is led by experienced guide Elizabeth Pearce from
Drink and Learn.

This tour does not stop at any bars; however, the price includes several cocktails and punches, so you will never have to pull out your wallet to buy a drink!
