It's Cocktail Week here at Eater, and we've got the hook up on what cocktails you should absolutely be drinking right now and all through the holiday season. Here, photographer Nikki Mayeux captures some of New Orleans' best bartenders making libations that demand you Drink This Cocktail Now.
Bar Tonique is quite an unassuming bar for the level of craft cocktails they create on a nightly basis. Here, the lovely and talented mixologist Sonali Fernando makes the bossman Ed Diaz's Blanche DuBois cocktail featuring gin, curacau, housemade orgeat, strawberries, citrus, and spearmint. Without a doubt, drink this cocktail now.
