Our 1/2 price off specials on cocktails + 1 flight – continues this Thursday, April 11th. We’ll be offering some of New Orleans’ classics that have now become The Brandy Bar’s own:
Absinthe Frappe’ – Victor Herbert’s Broadway musical referenced his tune” Absinthe Frappe’ ” – “It will free you from the burning thirst that is born of a night of the bowl, like a sun ’till rise through the inky skies that so heavily hang o’er your soul. At the first cool sip on your fevered lip you determine to live through the day, life’s again worthwhile as with a dawning smile you imbibe your Absinthe frappe’! “
Crux – A small constellation in the southern sky, sometimes called the Southern Cross, and is part of the constellation Centaurus. No one knows for sure who invented this fabulous drink, except it contains the essence of New Orleans.
Deauville – Originated in the 1930s in New Orleans. Deauville is a town in the northern part of France where the apple brandy Calvados is made. The recipe called for both Cognac and Calvados.
Mimosa – created in Paris, has weaved its way into New Orleans culture, like most things French, and was created at the Hotel Ritz in Paris by bartender spy Frank Meier, a member of the French Resistance.
Vieux Carre’ – Invented in 1938 by Walter Bergeron, the head bartender at the Monteleone Hotel in New Orleans, and is named after the French term for what we call “The French Quarter” ….le Vieux Carre (Old Square).
