The Carousel, New Orleans

Cocktails were definitely on the list when in New Orleans. We had a few obligatory Hurricanes, but when we tasted one of those vile grape-flavoured Voodoo-slushie thing, we realised it was time to up our cocktail game.

And that (and my obsession for Pinterest) is how we found the prettiest bar on Earth.

    This place looks awesome!
    If you ever find yourself in Savannah Ga check out Mata Hari. It’s a 1920’s styled speak easy with an intimate atmosphere and strong drinks 👌🏼
