The 4th annual Pig and Punch in New Orleans hosted by Bon Vivant and Imbibe.
On my way out of the city after a long and tiring weekend of debauchery through the jazz filled streets of New Orleans for Tales of the Cocktail, I happened to stumble upon one last party. I was killing my last hour in the French Quarter awaiting my flight and there I walked into the perfect sunday picnic. Multiple pig roasts with southern style sides alongside multiple garbage bins full of pre-made boozy punches.

The first taste of tender pork washed down with ginny punch had me feeling much better from my earlier exhausted hungover self. As soon as I finished my above plate the dry, humid 90 degree sunny day turned in a flash to an epic downpour and thunder and lightening storm.
This was the perfect combination for me to miss my flight and drench absolutely everything I owned in that moment. Luckily everything turned out okay and eventually I made it back to New York.
When in New Orleans remember… Would you like that cocktail for here or to go?
