New Orleans Tours

Cocktail and Culinary Tours

New Orleans is a city that is rich in the history of dining and drinking. Did you know that the first cocktail, the Sazerac, was invented in New Orleans? So were Peychaud's Bitters, Herbsaint, the Ramos Gin Fizz, the Grasshopper and the Hurricane.

But brunch was also invented in the city that loves to eat! And where would this city be without gumbo, crawfish étouffée and the po-boy?

Serious food and cocktail lovers can learn fascinating facts about food and drink on a New Orleans culinary tour offered by one of the following companies:
