If you’re looking for a way to celebrate a victory or console yourself, our friends at Hotel Montleone’s Carousel Bar created two cocktails to celebrate this past week’s Allstate Sugar Bowl at The Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
The cocktails honor both Louisville Cardinals and Florida Gators.
This bar is one of BourbonBlog.com‘s favorite places in New Orleans and we always spend a lot of time there during Tales of the Cocktail.
We’ll bring you new Super Bowl Cocktails soon as it is also scheduled to be played at The Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
In the meantime, while you’re waiting to bet on Super Bowl XLVII this February, enjoy sipping on these! And whether your tean won or lost this week, we’ve found that after a few cocktails, you may know who to bet on next time. We’re including some photos of the recent renovations at The Carousel Bar below.
