You’ve been to New Orleans before, maybe a few times. You’ve seen the French Quarter with its cobblestones and historic buildings. You’ve walked along the riverfront, enjoying the view of the Mississippi River and the city skyline. But have you ever taken a swan dive into a classic NOLA cocktail? Rode the street cars along Canal Street at night? Have you ever visited a plantation? Or gone on a ghost tour?
The Pain Killer cocktail is inspired by Southern Decadence in New Orleans—the annual gay festival hosted on Labor Day long weekend that celebrates Southern culture and heritage through music, art, food and drink.
The Pain Killer cocktail combines all these elements into one delicious drink: go on a swamp tour; explore cemeteries; enjoy entertainment and shops in French Quarter; ride street cars through Bourbon Street; visit plantations; have fun at bars on Bourbon Street; plus enjoy these delightful Pain Killer cocktails!
