A Sidecar Named Desire
In celebration of the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival, SoBou bar manager Laura Belluci crafted a Tennessee Williams-inspired cocktail. Williams called New Orleans his “spiritual home,” and in honor Belluci mixes cognac, apricot, lemon and bitters with a nod to his famed “Streetcar Named Desire” play. SoBou will have the drink on their menu throughout the month of April, and Belluci will be hosting a Tennessee Williams-themed Literary and Drinking Round Table at the French Quarter restaurant April 21.
2.5 oz. Pierre Ferrand cognac
