U Look Hungry
Chris Hanna of French 75 Bar
U Look Hungry is here this week to drop some knowledge about Mardi Gras, and no it's not just one day long! Host Helen Hollyman is joined by renown New Orleans bartender Chris Hannah who works at the legendary French 75 bar at Arnaud's Restaurant. He gives us the scoop on all the classic Mardi Gras cocktails--from the Suissesse to the Bacchanalian-- to hangover helpers and digestifs. Tune in and by the end of this episode you'll be ready to pass for a native and even get invited into New Orleans crew. This episode is sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons.
"In order to storytell you need to have a couple facts and then you embellish your story, so reading old books is a fantastic way to get facts . . I keep about 8 cocktail books behind the bar and I love to serve a guest, make them a drink, and then hand them a book so they can read about it, it enhances the experience."
