Thursday, August 24: Cocktail Tales — New Orleans: A Food and Spirit Event

The cocktail, though not invented in New Orleans as is often claimed, certainly gained fame here,” wrote New Orleans historian and academic Richard Campanella. New Orleans has been described for decades as “the cradle of civilized drinking” and is the birthplace of a number of historically significant cocktails. With this in mind, Fish House master mixologists Josh Goldman and Shaun Dixon will present three handcrafted classic cocktails from the Big Easy; Ramos Fizz, Brandy Crusta and Cocktail a la Louisiane. They will share the recipes and give a step-by-step guide on the mixing of these classic cocktails — all the while providing a bit of history along the way. Chef de Cuisine Jason Hughes has created an authentic, four-course New Orleans-inspired menu to bring the event full circle. Participants will take home a New Orleans classic cocktail guide. Event will include three beverages paired with a four-course dinner, held in The Fish House. $65 per person (plus tax and gratuity)


Each event begins at 5:30 p.m. Seating is limited; reservations are required and can be made by contacting Maria Goldberg —, 850-217-2347.
