New Orleans is no stranger to the cocktail, where enjoying a drink is a civic pastime for locals and visitors alike, only rivaled by dining. Though many drinks can call New Orleans home, the one that stands above the rest with the embodiment of the history and the character of our city is the Sazerac, the Official Cocktail of the City of New Orleans.
This historic drink has survived war, fire, disease and quite possibly the worst of them all, Prohibition. Yet through it all, bars, taverns, speakeasies and coffee houses have continued to swirl the Herbsaint and pour the Sazerac Rye for a drink as unique as the city that gave it life.
The cocktail that is now often referred to as History in a Glass now has its own glass.
Tales of the Cocktail and the New Orleans Culinary and Cultural Preservation Society are selling the Official Cocktail of New Orleans Sazerac glass for holiday gifts. Money raised will support the efforts of these two non-profit organizations.
Official Cocktail of New Orleans glasses are available now online at www.TalesoftheCocktail.com.
A set of four boxed glasses is $30.00 inclusive of tax. Glasses can be shipped anywhere in the United States for an additional shipping charge of $8.00.
