Sylvain's The Kindness Of Strangers & Cheating Death

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 even through the impending holiday season. Here, photographer Josh Brasted captures some of New Orleans' best bartenders making libations that demand you Drink This.

Sylvain is a French Quarter hub for great food and craft cocktails. The bar, led by Liam Deegan, executes both classic and original drinks very well. Here now, a double dose of Drink This from Liam Deegan and fellow bartender Darrin Ylisto.

First up, Deegan makes The Kindness of Strangers, a calvados cocktail with a Ricard rinse, and a touch of champagne syrup for some class. Darrin Ylisto makes the Cheating Death an Armagnac cocktail with Angostura 7-year rum, Cocchi Americano, and Fee Borthers whiskey barrel bitters. If that doesn't put some hair on your chest, nothing will. Drink these cocktails now and all through Fall, only at Sylvain.
