As I said in the previous post, New Orleans invented the cocktail. The Napoleon House perfected it. The must tries here are Pimm’s Cup, Dark & Stormy and Sazerac. Love all three. The food here is decent, although, I’ve had a better muffaletta. Still though, this is a great place to chill on a sunny and warm afternoon with a ice cold drink and a book. This place is so old and beautiful. Loaded with character. I found myself gravitating to this place anytime I was thirsty.
There seems to be a million ways to make a Pimm’s cup. I like the way Napoleon House does it:
1.) 1 shot of Pimm’s No. 1 into a high ball glass over ice.
2.) Fresh Squeezed Lemonade
3.) Top with Soda
4.) Garnish with a half cucumber slice.
edit: I think its important to note that the cocktail was not really invented in New Orleans. In fact, I don’t think that that debate has been settled yet. However, NOLA has made several cocktails famous, and have been called “The Birthplace of the Cocktail” by many.
