Hold The Liquor – Louisiana Eats – It’s New Orleans

A growing trend in the craft cocktail movement has bartenders mixing drinks with little to no alcohol, shifting their focus to flavor. On this week s show, we ll explore the new wave of non alcoholic craft drinks, starting with cocktail vanguards Don Lee and Bobby Murphy, who experiment with non alcoholic ingredients at the New York City establishment Existing Conditions. Then, we hear from Ben Branson, founder of Seedlip a distillery producing non alcoholic spirits using peas grown on his 300 year old family farm in Northern England. We ll also hear from Charlotte Voisey of William Grant and Sons about Tales of the Cocktail s first ever non alcoholic party at the annual spirits convention. Hold the alcohol we re having a new wave cocktail party, on this week s Louisiana Eats. For more of all things Louisiana Eats, be sure to visit us at PoppyTooker.com.
