Next month brings one of our favorite cocktail events of the year, Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans. If you haven't already purchased your tickets, now's the time to nail down your plans. This year's event takes place July 16-20, and as usual, it will be packed with fantastic events, from spirits tastings and seminars to cocktail tours and pairing dinners. We're especially excited to be sponsoring this year's Spirited Dinners, which pair some of the world's most talented bartenders and cocktail experts with chefs at the best restaurants of New Orleans. Last year we attended a Spirited Dinner at the legendary Commander's Palace, and it was a truly inredible culinary experience—here's a link to this year's venue and menus. Tickets to these dinners always go quickly, so be sure to reserve a spot in time. Check out the Tales of the Cocktail website for more details on other festivities happening over the course of the event—we hope to see you there!
