Summary

Summary

Obituary Cocktail pours out the story of New Orleans and of such local phenomena as Mardi Gras, Quadroon Balls, and the world's first cocktail. Obituary Cocktail reveals recipes for long-time favorites like the Ramos Gin Fizz and the Sazerac, as well as historic drinks that have not been tasted for 100 years, like the strange poison the book is named for.From the French Quarter's elegant Arnaud's to the Ninth Ward's eccentric Saturn Bar, from the world-famous Pat O'Brien's to the obscure Bud Rip's Obituary Cocktail dispels erroneous bar folklore and tells the true stories that prove even more fascinating.
