Nick Detrich, Cane and Table – New Orleans, LA
Inspiration: The Cruzan® Natchez Cocktail is inspired by the Rum Ramsey, a truly New Orleans drink. Combining a spirituous sipper format, anise aromatics, and a touch of New Orleans’ Peychaud’s Bitters, the Natchez Cocktail embodies the types of drams sipped along the crescent river.
