Famous New Orleans Cocktails Seminar in DC in February
The Museum of the American Cocktail is sponsoring another New Orleans cocktail presentation on February 28th from 5:30 - 7:00 at Ruth's Chris Steak House at 1801 Connecticut Avenue. (Link).
From the Museum's website:
"Join cocktail historian Phil Greene for this fun and educational drink presentation focusing on the Sazerac and other famous classic New Orleans drinks, their history and how to prepare them. Among Phil's ancestors was Antoine Amedee Peychaud, the nineteenth-century New Orleans pharmacist who concocted Peychaud's Bitters and is credited by many with coining the term cocktail."
At least one blogger went to the presentation in June. From "Lagniappe in DC":
"Went to a seminar at Ruth's Chris last night..."How To Make Famous New Orleans Cocktails"... super fun and i was not a little tipsy before it was all over.... they greet you at the door with a French 75, which is a Mimosa-esque drink containing Gin and Champagne with fresh lemon and possibly orange juice and bitters..... yummy!!! Follow that with an authentic Hurricane, a Ramos Gin Fizz and an authentic NOLA Mint Julep and this girl was a little dizzy! The "appetizer sampler" they provided was little more than a glorified cheese and cracker platter, which i was scarfing down with wild abandon.. fun fun!"
