Drink Lab NOLA
Give a man a Sazerac and he’ll drink well in NOLA for an evening. Teach a man to make a Sazerac and he’ll drink well for a lifetime. Therein lies the appeal of Drink Lab NOLA. Created by the folks behind Victory, one of the CBD’s best loved cocktail bars, Drink Lab NOLA offers cocktail classes taught by award-winning master bartenders. Over the course of a two-hour session, you’ll sample, shake and learn about the history behind, and the art in, making classic New Orleans cocktails. We’re talking Ramos Gin Fizzes and Hurricanes. And, as an added bonus, lunch is served.
Snacks and meals are also features of the tastings that Drink Lab NOLA host, including events for wine, whiskey and bourbon. There’s nary a drink that isn’t represented here; Drink Lab NOLA is a veritable temple to the tipple.
Once you’ve mastered the Sazerac and other classics, the next step in your Drink Lab NOLA cocktail education is the Mixology masterclass. Like its sister session, it’ll offer keen participants all the building blocks needed to make creative, clever craft cocktails. After all, anyone can take home tales of hedonistic drinking in the Crescent City. But how many can take the skills they need to conjure the NOLA spirit far from Louisiana’s balmy borders?
