Queen's Cousin Cocktail

New head mixologist at The Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans, Kent Westmoreland has revamped the lobby’s Cocktail Bar and is shaking up originals and obscure classics like the one¬†below. “They may not have heard of it,” he says about the Queen’s Cousin, “but every time I serve one to people, they go crazy for it.” Order his signature cocktail, or another new item like the Corpse Reviver #2 or La Louisiane, during the bar’s happy hour Thursday through Saturday along with a bar snack, all served up to the sound of live jazz.
