Hey, All! We’ve got another great drink in our new “The #NOLADrinks Show Featured Drink Series!” This time, we’ve got a nice rum cocktail – “The Privateer” by Patrick Williams of Midnight Revival! As Patrick puts it, “It’s a cigar type sipper.” It’s rum-forward with nice elements of fruit and spice courtesy of the banana liqueur and allspice dram. Here’s what you need to do…⁠

Ingredients:⁠

.25 oz Monin Simple Syrup (or make your own)⁠
1.5 oz Pusser’s Rum (Original) ⁠
.5 oz Giffard Banane du Bresil⁠
.25 oz St. Elizabeth’s Allspice Dram⁠
2 dashes of Angostura Bitters⁠
Build:⁠

Place all ingredients in a mixing glass and add ice. Stir for 40 revolutions. Strain into a rocks glass over large ice and garnish with an additional mist of the Allspice Dram.⁠
Tips:⁠

You can batch this drink for a party or for volume use. Patrick noted he likes the way the allspice dram “grows” in the batch. For the large ice, one big cube (you can find large ice cube trays, in square or round shapes and usually 6-up, online or in some craft bottle shops) works great. For the allspice mist, you can easily find small squirt bottles in grocery stores or online. These work great for use in our previous Featured Drink, The Sazerac, when coating the glass with Herbsaint or absinthe. See our previous post.⁠

Cheers and Be Well, You All!✌️❤️🍹⁠

Here’s something new, our “The #NOLADrinks Show Featured Drink!” Often, we will get with talented bartenders and others to bring you a terrific libation! The idea is to share the recipe and tips on how to make it. Sometimes they might be a bit challenging technique-wise or require you to get an ingredient or two from the bottle shop (not just the grocery). But, the goal, whether you are a home bartender or someone in the trade looking to grow your chops, is to share something with you that you can actually make!

For our first one, where else would we start in New Orleans than with the Sazerac!?! It’s the city’s official cocktail and we’re about to kick-off Sazerac Cocktail Week and Sazerac Cocktail Day on June 23. Here we bring you the way this New Orleans classic is done at the Sazerac House. Though the drink is made with five straightforward ingredients, getting the technique and the balance right is critical. This week’s show (out soon!) has more tips, the history of the drink, “acceptable” variations, and more with our guest Matt Ray of the Sazerac House!

Ingredients:

1.5 oz Sazerac Rye
1 sugar cube
3 dashes of Peychaud’s Bitters
.25 oz Herbsaint
Lemon Twist

Preparation:

Pack an Old Fashioned (rocks glass) with ice to chill it down. In a second Old-Fashioned glass, place in the sugar cube and cover it with 3 dashes of bitters. Muddle the cube well in the bitters. Add the Rye to the glass. Add ice and stir to get it nice and cool (but not too diluted!) Empty the ice from the first glass and coat with the Herbsaint by rolling it around the entire glass. Discard the remaining Herbsaint. Strain the drink into the Herbsaint coated glass and garnish with a twist of lemon and the peel on the rim.

Recipe courtesy of @SazeracHouse

Cheers and Be Well, You All, And Happy Sazerac Day!✌️❤️🍸

We are never judgy on The #NOLADrinks Show, except of course, when judging cocktails! Thanks to Diageo for asking me to be part of the judging panel for their “For the Love of Agave” event here in New Orleans at the Toulouse Theater! Local bartenders showed out sharing their cocktail chops and presenting their drinks across various criteria including presentation, taste, balance, and sustainability. Lots of cool, inventive, and delicious libations!

New show out tomorrow – our annual Tales of the Cocktail preview! Cheers and Be Well, You All!

Hey All – Some news – If you are a radio listener of the show here locally in NOLA, we’re now your go-to Friday drivetime program! Starting tonight, we’re moving from our 7pm slot to 5pm on 990AM. We’re here to help you kick-off your weekend happy hour right! If you’re a podcast listener – thank you! As always, we will still be bringing you our podcast-only segment "Another Shot with NOLADrinks" where we take a deeper dive into our topics with our guests.⁠

On this week’s show, we’re excited to bring you a preview of New Orleans Bourbon Festival 2022 – back in action after a two-year pandemic layoff. We talk with the festival’s co-founders, Barbara Hirsch-Napolitano and Tracy Napolitano. We discuss this year’s event, what you can expect, how to attend, and much more. We let you know about the grand tastings, the food, the seminars, and, of course, all the great American whiskeys that will be on-hand.⁠

On this week’s The #NOLADrinks Show with Bryan Dias, we bring you a look at Tales of the Cocktail 2022! We’re joined by the organization’s CEO, Eileen Wayner. We talk about the excitement surrounding the event’s in-person return to New Orleans in July. Also, we discuss some of the challenges faced and adaptations made by Tales over the past two years due to the pandemic. We chat about a few of the themes, structures, and activities you can expect this year along with a whole lot more “Tales” conversation.⁠
