Dynamic Variation:

New Orleans Wine & Food Experience On The Road

Aug 31, 2021


In the gorgeous courtyard of Bigsby's Folly Craft Winery, we will celebrate all things New Orleans cocktails with Jewel of the South’s, Chris Hannah, New Orleans mixologist extraordinaire. This walk-around social event will have a taste of what it means to drink in New Orleans while also giving attendees a taste of Bigsby's incredible wines.

Bigsby's will provide small bites to pair with Chris Hannah's take on classic New Orleans cocktails. Expect Hurricanes, Creole Cocktail, Night Tripper, French 75, Milk Punch, Pimm’s Cup, and the iconic Brandy Crusta, the first sugar-rimmed cocktail in the world and the predecessor to the Margarita and Sidecar.
