BIG EASY HOLIDAYS

Christmas in New Orleans has always been a magical time. Alive with fine dining establishments and historic cafes, the city has preserved the culinary history and food culture that is so distinctly its own. Jazz up your taste buds with some true N’awlins holiday goodness. Joyeux Noel!

Southern Comfort was born in the Big Easy in 1874. But what is SoCo? Often sitting next to the whiskey on liquor shelves, Southern Comfort isn’t actually a whiskey. It’s an original spirit with core whiskey notes blended with iconic fruit and spice accents to add sweetness and smoothness. Today, as a result of these infusions, Southern Comfort is technically classed as a liqueur and enjoyed best with mainstream mixers and in cocktails.

Warm Blue Cheese & Bacon Dip with Crostini • Smoked Salmon on Dill-Chive Potato Pancakes topped with Whiskey Cream Sauce • Grilled Strip Steaks with Shallot Butter • Three-Potato & Caramelized Onion Gratin • Roasted Balsamic Brussels Sprouts • Apple Pie Bars with Bourbon Caramel & Vanilla Ice Cream
