NEW ORLEANS– Cocktail kits will be available for purchase and curbside pickup at Sazerac House, with proceeds benefitting Louisiana Hospitality Foundation.

The Sazerac House experience team, featuring mixologists Rhiannon Enlil and Matt Ray are supporting the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation by virtually adapting their beloved guided tasting format. The Sazerac House is now offering complimentary online Virtual Cocktail Workshops. These sessions follow the format of their beloved guided tastings, adapted for a physically-distanced world.

Sazerac House experience team leaders Rhiannon Enlil and Matt Ray, both long-time New Orleans cocktail experts, will focus on one cocktail per session, giving guests the historical background of the drink and a hands-on demonstration, all the while taking questions via the chatbox. Guests will learn everything from the first places that these cocktails were ever served to the type of ice best suited for them, all while mixing up their own and sipping simultaneously with cocktail enthusiasts around the world. The sessions are 45 minutes long, limited to 50 participants, and cocktail kits with the ingredients for each cocktail will be available for pre-order and curbside pickup at the Sazerac House, with 10% of proceeds going to benefit the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation.
