Laginappe is a little something we say in New Orleans when someone gives us a little something extra. At Tales of the Cocktail® 2016, Shop Local returns as even more stores around the city offer you some serious lagniappe. Stop at these select shops and show them your RFID Tasting Room wristband when you make a purchase for a little gift or a special discount. It’s our way of saying thank you for keeping it local and supporting the New Orleans economy.
