With the help of the Eater 38 and the Eater Heatmap, it's a breeze to find out where to eat right now, whether it's a hot newcomer or an old neighborhood standby. Now it's just as easy to find out where to get a good, stiff drink in New Orleans.
Eater's Cocktail Heatmap is a guide to the hottest bars of the moment, so only places that have opened, or undergone a major change, in the past year qualify. We will assume the readership already knows how to get their Cure, French 75, Latitude 29, and Twelve Mile Limit on.
Happy drinking, and as always, feel free to leave a comment with new suggestions.

This bakery and then some boasts not only carby delights to eat, but also a coffee and tea based cocktail menu unlike any other in town. Boozy coffee slushies, like a frappuccino gone wild (but not too sweet) make for great brunch drinks.
