While some New Orleans restaurants and bars are giving away drink specials to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, the new Cocktail Bar at Windsor Court Hotel is going beyond the usual this year with the St. Patrick’s Day Signature Cocktail Sweepstakes. To celebrate the creation of a new signature cocktail, this New Orleans lounge is holding a naming contest. The person who submits the best name for the new drink will receive fabulous prizes: a $300 bar tab for The Grill Room, a dinner for two from the restaurant’s famous tasting menu and a complimentary overnight stay at the Windsor Court, one of the most luxurious New Orleans hotels.
Entering the St. Patrick’s Day Signature Cocktail Sweepstakes is simple. “Like” The Windsor Court on Facebook. From March 2 through March 11, visitors to the Facebook page will be asked to submit their names and contact information as well as the name of the new cocktail. On or about March 12, the winners will be announced.

About Cocktail Bar
New in 2012 to Windsor Court Hotel and as part of the recent $22 million restoration, the Cocktail Bar is taking a modern, culinary approach to its cocktails by creating original craft drinks inspired by pre-prohibition themes and ingredients. Cocktail Bar’s mixologist, Christine Jeanine Nielsen, is working closely with the hotel’s Executive Chef Drew Dzejak on incorporating culinary techniques into her cocktail creations – like the Lion Amongst Ladies featuring Damiana, lemon, flamed orange peel and “2 Hour” kumquat tequila, infused using sous vide. Each guest of Cocktail Bar is welcomed with a booze amuse, a take on an amuse-bouche, featuring a cocktail or punch of the day. The cocktail menu will change seasonally and will expand in the future. Guests are encouraged to ask the bartenders to create off-menu customized cocktails according to their flavor profile.
