New Orleans’ coldest air of the year could mean $3 hot cocktails in the French Quarter

temp-drinksNew Orleans is bracing not only for a Saints win in Sunday’s NFC Championship game, but for weekend lows in the 30s as well.

Saturday and Sunday low temperatures are currently forecasted to hit 38F and 37F degrees respectively.

Beginning late last year, all four Dickie Brennan & Co. restaurants began tethering their specialty hot cocktails to that day’s low. To date, the lowest price has been $4, but that record could be broken this weekend.

Keep your eyes out and jacket close. And remember, 2 drinks per person, per day, per restaurant!

The Temperature Drink offerings include:

Palace Café: Hot Spiced Rum

Sailor Jerry, pear-cinnamon shrub, and velvet falernum, topped with whipped cream and garnished with a cinnamon stick.

Dickie Brennan’s Steakhouse: Hot Toddy

Tyrconnell Irish Whiskey, lemon juice, local honey, apple & cardamom cider. (Recipe)

Bourbon House: Yule Hot Cider

Buffalo Trace bourbon, house-made mulled cider, apple simple syrup, and lemon juice with a cinnamon stick garnish. (Recipe)

Tableau: Hot Buttered Rum

All of the four restaurants are located within walking distance of each other in the French Quarter. Make Temperature Drinks part of your weekend Quarter plans – what could be more perfect than a hot cocktail following a Saints cool win?
