Today’s Reason To Drink


Horseshoes & Hand Grenades

Checked out Roux last night for a quick drink with a friend. It’s a New Orleans-inspired restaurant and bar in the Highlands.

I found a cozy seat at the quaint upstairs bar and marveled at the stocked bar. I perused the drink list and had to order the Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, because the Hand Grenade down at New Orleans’ Tropical Isle bar is one of my favorite drinks. Of course this isn’t a replica but more of a tribute — and it includes Old Forester bourbon, which the New Orleans version doesn’t, as far as I can remember.

I’d like to go back for the Hurricane and The Conjugal Visit. And the beignets. I had an order of three and they were delicious and messy, especially if you’re wearing black.
