After traveling to Napoleon House in a torrential downpour that broke our paper bags and spilled tequila all over Royal Street, we finally got to try the Café Napoléon Iced Coffee Cocktail during this 2012’s Tales of the Cocktail. Easy to make and completely appropriate for this city (Napoleon, iced coffee, citrus), it was well worth the adventure getting to it.
