“The most New Orleans museum imaginable just opened: one devoted to a cocktail. Sazerac House, a celebration and exploration of one of the city’s two signature cocktails (the other being the Hurricane, of course), opened in October. Visitors can take a free 50-minute tour, and guests over 21 will find ample opportunities to try samples of the drink, made of Sazerac rye whiskey, Herbsaint (an anise-flavored liqueur, like absinthe), a sugar cube, and a few drops of Peychaud’s bitters. The New Orleans–made ingredients are available for purchase, too, of course.”

Here’s to always having a good drink and a better story.
