Join Doctor Gumbo Tours on a journey through New Orleans’ historic and fascinating history of cocktails, and sample them along the way. Visit one of the oldest bars in the country, find out how the Sazerac was invented, get the real scoop on absinthe, learn the origins of the cocktail and discover hidden gems where locals have been imbibing for centuries. Each stop will feature a historic cocktail prepared by multiple award-winning mixologists, and your guide will give you the history behind them! Expect to visit 4 venues including Cane & Table, Dickie Brennan's Tabeau and more!

The last bar has been nominated for a James Beard Award for multiple years for their amazing Bar Program. They also serve delicious Caribbean and local fare in case you need some food to “soak things up”!
