Cocktail Walking Tour, New Orleans

New Orleans Cocktail Walking Tour

Take a walk through the French Quarter's bars and restaurants to discover the famous 'spirits' of New Orleans.

From America's first cocktail - the Sazerac - to the Pimm's Cup, the Ramos Gin Fizz and Absinthe you will enjoy a completely different view of New Orleans through the history of fine dining and drinking. You'll be entertained with classic stories of the cocktail concoctions which have been made famous in the city plus all the characters that brought them to life.

You must be 21-years of age or older to take this tour and there are drinks available to purchase along the route, plus some Mardi Gras souvenir beads to bring home too!

If you fancy sampling a typical New Orleans cocktail from the comfort of your home try our Vieux Carré recipe. This is the signature cocktail of the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans where Tales of the Cocktail was held. The Vieux Carré was created in 1938 by Walter Bergeron, who was then the head bartender, and the name comes from the French name for the Old Quarter.

Whether you're an early bird or a night owl, no matter what time of day - New Orleans has something in store for all visitors. Read about things to do in New Orleans.
