Drink Recipes

Here’s a short list of drinks along with the recipes commonly found in the French Quarter. 
The recipe for the former Tricou House’s “Crusher" wasn't found, but there is a similar
drink with the same name that looks about as strong.   Hope you enjoy and remember,
don't drink and drive!   Any one of these drinks will make it illegal to drive in most states.
