scenes from Tales of the Cocktail: Pre Tales...

Barbara West is presenting at the conference and had to make sure she had all her materials on hand. Don't expect to get on a plane with a portable bar and a bottle of Picon without raising some eyebrows...






Babs' Contraband
























Lunch by the pool with MiMi and longtime LUPEC friend, Em...














Mimi, Pink Lady & Em, at dinner at Jacques-Imo's.
















Pink Gin + Fried Roast Beef Po' Boy = Heaven















Hanky Panky & Pink Gin + bubbly = heaven. What else does one drink with a Fried Po' Boy?
















Last night we drank these. Try one and live vicariously through us:

Vieux Carre

1 ounce rye whiskey
1 ounce Cognac
1 ounce sweet vermouth
1 teaspoon Bénédictine D.O.M.
2 dashes Peychaud's Bitters2 dashes Angostura Bitters

Mix all ingredients in a double Old Fashioned glass over ice; stir.

Cin-cin!
