It’s Official – Sazerac Now Official Cocktail of New Orleans

See this blurb or listen to the clip on NPR to hear the news.
The NPR story includes a quote from Ti Adelaide Martin, which I love:
“Do have just one, as you won’t be nearly as attractive as you think you are after two.”
Hail to the Sazerac, official drink of Nola.
And, just in time, this filed by John Mariani: The Museum of the American Cocktail.
