I've been thinking about Louisiana A LOT lately. With my True Detective obsession and my best friend moving to New Orleans it's activated my wanderlust for a trip to the South. I flew all the way out to Louisiana in October to see how Tabasco is made on Avery Island but never made my way into New Orleans. How rude is that? Can you believe I've never had a beignet at Cafe du Monde??!
Time to change that.
I hope to make it to NOLA before the Fall, but for now I'm going to welcome my maj in her new home with a cocktail made all the way over here in her home state of California. I was cleaning out a stack of papers in my office last week and a little recipe card from Martha Stewart Living March 2004 for this drink popped out. It's like Martha KNOWS and Martha wants us to get our buzz on.
