Episode 8: Virtual Happy Hour with Seven Three Distilling Co.

Episode 8 of Virtual Happy Hour, presented by Spirit Hub, was a doozy! We had a great guest, great crowd and a great time!

If you weren't able to be there with us LIVE on Facebook, it's all good. You can check out a replay of our Virtual Happy with Rose Robinson, social media manager at New Orleans, Louisiana's Seven Three Distilling Company.

They're an independent distillery that takes their name and inspiration from the 73 distinct neighborhoods that make up "The Big Easy". 

 "We draw a lot on local flavors," Rose explains. And it shows in the craft spirits they make. 

Like their Marigny Moonshine which is made from fresh Louisiana-grown rice. Or the St. Roch Cucumber Vodka. Rose says, "It's approachable, it's easy, it's a lot of fun."

After sharing the stories behind those two spirits with us, Rose demonstrates how to make a pair of refreshing cocktails using them. 

First up is the Papa Legba, a refreshing, ginger beer-topped drink made with sweet blackberry liqueur. 

Then it's onto the Cucumber Spritz which is a simple to make as it is to enjoy.

It's a chance to learn all about the Seven Three Distilling Company backstory and how it's connected to the history of New Orleans. We get to meet two exceptional craft spirits. And learn some fantastic cocktail recipes. 

It's Episode 8 of Spirit Hub's Virtual Happy Hour, an absolute must see that's available to watch right now!
