As the birthplace of the cocktail in America, New Orleans takes its libations pretty seriously, and Bayona’s specialty drinks surely demonstrate that. A full bar is available, but why not order something from the restaurant’s well-curated list of tipples? On the menu you’ll find some unique delights like The Fats, a libation made with manzanilla sherry, pistachio liqueur, blueberries, lemon and agave nectar, and the signature Bayona martini, prepared with Hendrick’s gin and a splash of rose water. If you like something bubbly, try The Stormy Morning, which combines elderflower and violet liqueurs with sparkling wine and lime, or the Cocchi Classico, a slightly bitter aperitif made with Cocchi Americano, soda water and muddled oranges and lemons. Any of these cocktails makes a fine prelude to your creative internationally inspired meal at Bayona.
