Although I am originally from New Orleans , I was not raised here. I spent half of my adolescence in Norcross , GA. Over time, I missed out on a lot of culture but in the four years I’ve been back home, I have worked hard to catch up.
New Orleans is known for its culture , music, and my personal favorites AMAZING FOOD and BEVERAGES! The picture above was taken at one of the spots that a friend of mine helped me to discover. It is a very calm , classy , and cozy bar named Cure.
The drink on the left is the Charm Offensive and the one on the right is Two Dope Boys and a Cadillac. Both drinks are featured on the bars seasonal Summer 2018 Menu so they won’t be around for long. The Charm Offensive was on the stronger side , not overly strong but all I could taste was the old fashion riff. Sumer fruit was said to be in this drink but I didn’t taste it at all. On the other hand I am still so amazed at the way the Two Dope Boys and a Cadillac was perfected! This drink is equipped with Rum sour, strawberry, and a bittersweet amari. It is the perfect mixture between strong and sweet. I tried this drink strictly based on the name but I think I’ve found my drink of the summer.
Cheers to Cure for knocking this one out of the park and for creating this beautiful moment!
