On Sunday, May 6, 2018, the specialty shop will host Elizabeth “Liz” Williams, author of Lift Your Spirits: A Celebratory History of Cocktail Culture in New Orleans.

In Lift Your Spirts, Williams, Founder and Director of the National Food and Beverage Foundation (NatFAB) which includes New Orleans’ famed Museum of the American Cocktail (MOTAC), along with award-winning bartender Chris McMillian, delve into the traditions, myths and personalities that have made the Crescent City a renowned destination for imbibing tourists and a mecca for mixologists.
