To honor this year’s Beard Awards, we asked each of our 2016 Outstanding Bar Program semifinalists to create a cocktail inspired by a television show. Neal Bodenheimer, partner at the stylish (and now JBFA-nominated) New Orleans establishment Cure, crafted this “sunrise-style” drink based on the highly publicized trial (and recent television series) The People v. O.J. Simpson. As he explains, the cocktail is irreverent, “because that’s the way we process controversy in New Orleans.” Get the recipe.
