Join the Cocktail Revolution

Cocktails are back.Though for most of New Orleans, and certainly us, they never left. Ti Adelaide Martin and Lally Brennan, Co-Proprietors of Commander's Palace and known in some circles as "The Cocktail Chicks," want you to be a part of the Cocktail Revolution. Put down the bottled sour mix and step into The Land of Cocktails - the bar adjacent to the Commander's kitchen. Watch with anticipation as the bartender vigorously shakes your Ramos Gin Fizz with drama and flair or appreciate the balance of tequila, limoncello and bitters in a sip of Ti's favorite - the Tequila Mockingbird II.

Join us at the bar and peruse the cocktail list for a Commander's invention or a classic cocktail - we doubt you'll be disappointed. Cheers!

Classic Cocktails

Golden Dawn
This drink from the UK circa 1920 was created by the United Kingdom Bartender's Guild. Calvados, gin, Cointreau, apricot brandy, and orange, this drink is a gift from our friends across the pond. 9.

Sazerac Rye Whiskey, Peychaud's Bitters, Herbsaint and finished with a twist of lemon. A New Orleans classic. 8.25
With Lucid Absinthe rinse... 14.

This is a big, beautiful drink for a connoisseur of cocktails. Brandy, Cointreau, lemon juice and sugar in perfect proportions. 8.25

Champagne Cocktail
Since it became popular in 1862, this effervescent mix of sparkling wine, sugar and bitters has been guaranteed to set a celebratory mood. 7.

Old Fashioned
Muddled orange and cherry with bitters and sugar form the base for this enigmatic classic. Then add Bourbon or Rye whiskey for the kick. Or have it like Ella does—with Scotch. 8.

Original Mai Tai
We use Trader Vic's recipe for the King of the "Tiki" drinks. Gold and dark rum, oregeat, lime juice, and Orange Curacoa will definitely get everyone in the party spirit. 10.75

Blood and Sand
Scotch, Cherry Herring, Sweet Vermouth, and Orange combined in a romantic cocktail, named for the 1922 Rudolph Valentino movie. 9.

French 75
Named for the 75mm French cannons that helped win World War I, the base for this lovely cocktail is sparkling wine with sugar and lemon. Choose gin or brandy to finish yours off. 8.25

This classic was introduced at the Manhattan Club in the 1870's, during a banquet hosted by Sir Winston Churchill's mother. Sweet vermouth and bitters are mixed with whiskey and served up or on the rocks. Choose the contemporary favorite Bourbon, a nice smoky Scotch, or have it with classic Rye whiskey. 9.5
