Drink Out Here

RUM DISTILLERY

River Road Distillery

Made from locally grown Louisiana sugarcane and water from the Mississippi River, Kicking Mule Rum is the liquid essence of the River Parishes. Head to the Turtle Bar located at Houmas House Plantation and Gardens to taste our region’s rum for yourself.

DAIQUIRIS

Daiquiris

Sweet in taste, like an adult snoball, daiquiris are a staple of the region and a Louisiana tradition. Crawgator, Cajun Colada, Painkiller… the flavors go on and on, as do the sizes. Stop by The Seafood Pot or one of New Orleans Original Daiquiri’s, one of the many daiquiri shops in the area, and grab one the next time you find yourself out here.

MINT JULEP

Mint Julep B and C Seafood

Enjoy a refreshing mint julep as you stroll beneath the live oaks at Oak Alley Plantation or while enjoying fresh Louisiana seafood at B&C Seafood. No matter where you stop, you can ask your bartender to make you their own version of this famous drink.

JULIA BROWN

Julia Brown's swamp shack

You’ll hear the legacy of Julia Brown as you make your way through the Manchac Swamp, but come to Frenier Landing to taste the drink that her story inspired. Beware, they say the drink can conjure her spirit!

CRAFT BEER

Drink like a local at Cajunboyz Brewery. Stop by to play a game of darts, watch sports or catch one of their movie nights.
