New Orleans Cocktail History Walking Tour in the French Quarter

We had an amazing time. Our drinks were dynamite and our guide was very cool with lots of good history and information! I absolutely would recommend this if your on the fence about it. If you’re a lightweight like we I would strongly encourage you to eat something before you go or it’ll be a short night lol

I originally was going to do this with a friend but last minute she couldn’t go. Instead of canceling, I went ahead and decided to just do it by myself; I’m so glad I did. It was a nice, small, very personal tour that felt super casual and laid-back. We had 4 delicious cocktails and learned about the history of the drinks as well as getting some cultural context, which was fascinating. Even though I was by myself, I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with everyone else on the tour and had an absolutely wonderful time!

I've lived in the New Orleans area my entire life and didn't realize how important New Orleans was to the development of the cocktail. Beth, our guide for the night, was extremely knowledgeable about the history and the beginnings of not only the drinks that we consumed but of many other cocktails as well. I guess she had to have sampled plenty for her knowledge . I strongly recommend doing this or other tours with Dr. Gumbo. I also recommend not having too many drinks before this tour because the you will have the perfect amount to sample. The locations that we stopped at for our drinks were absolutely beautiful and showcased the classy side of the Big Easy.

Beth was AMAZING! She provided great history of our drinks along with some insight into more recent New Orleans history. She was prompt, friendly and very knowledgeable. Take a tour with her if you can! Thanks for a great time Beth and we took your recommendations for food and good places to get specific drinks the next day! ;)
