The Intoxicology Report

One Week of Gin



Welcome to the Intoxicology Report, a drinking journey with a few recommendations and a few lessons. This column is dedicated to my experience consuming one variety of alcohol for seven days straight. This time, we take on gin, my favorite spirit. No, it doesn’t always taste like Christmas trees.

Sofia Coppola Shares Her NOLA Faves


Sofia Coppola’s appreciation for New Orleans was hard won. Initially turned off by Bourbon Street tourist traps, the Oscar-winning screenwriter, director, and actress (folks, forgive her for The Godfather III) fell in love after spending two months living in NOLA while working on her newest film The Beguiled. During her time in Hollywood South, she developed a list of her favorite spots around town, which she kindly shared Conde Nast Traveler.

 


Chasing the Green Fairy

NoDef's Absinthe Day Guide



Ten years ago, the nationwide ban on absinthe was lifted in the United States after almost a century. Given how quickly the anise-flavored herbal spirit has become a staple in cocktails, it's hard to believe that for over 96 years New Orleanians lived without green frappés, drips, and daiquiris. Today (3.5) is National Absinthe Day, so how better to celebrate the spirit's rise from madness-inducing elixir of the bohemian set to the superstar ingredient in cocktails nationwide than with a comprehensive guide to the city's best absinthe-minded offerings. From tours of distilleries and museums to cocktail crawls across the Vieux Carre, read on for NoDef's guide to absinthe in New Orleans.
