Sac-a-Lait is the award-winning New Orleans restaurant from Chefs Cody and Samantha Carroll. The restaurant’s Beverage Director, Norton Christopher, focuses on fresh seasonal cocktails utilizing the produce and herbs grown in the restaurant’s on-site garden. This approach gives the drinks a fresh spin you won’t find at your typical bar.
At Sac-a-Lait, you’re getting straight from the vine to the glass. Some of the unique ingredients they plant include lovage, Aztec sweet herb, safflower, wormwood, Vietnamese coriander, lemon verbena, Malabar spinach, fish mint, Baltic rue, Nasturtium and much more.
This holiday season, Christopher is offering up several festive cocktails including the Underberg Sour. The cocktail is made with Old Grand Dad 100, Grand Marnier, Underberg and both chocolate and orange-ginger bitters.
