How to Drink at Nola with Ian McIntyre

Ian Macintyre, Nola, London

New Orleans, the birthplace of so many cocktails, is a really, really long way from London. Saying that, you can still sip that Sazerac without hopping a plane across the pond, thanks to Ian McIntyre. Why NOLA? Why London? He revealed all when he sat down with me over a Hurricane or two.

I speak with Ian McIntyre, General Manager of the easiest bars in London, the Big Easy that is. Taking its inspiration from the Crescent City, the team at NOLA (now closed) decided there was one thing missing in London and that was a good Hurricane.

They have righted that wrong and now the fun of Bourbon Street has moved east to Shoreditch. Ian graciously talked me through this Nol-ifacation.

FYI: Don’t be confused! This video is branded with my old logo, Best Sips Worldwide. Just ignore it and watch the amazing cocktail making 😉
