With Spring's arrival comes a whole new set of rules (thanks, COVID-19). While we're working, schooling, and socializing at home, the food and beverage industry in New Orleans is persevering with creative ways to continue to offer their menus. If you're ordering to-go or having your dinner delivered, consider making a mocktail or cocktail from these four New Orleans establishments and bookmark them for a visit post-coronavirus. 

Drink Beauty

Pomegranate Matcha Lemonade by Drink Beauty

Drink Beauty

This Instagrammable Magazine Street cafe offers a variety of beverages including coffee, matcha, and specialty lattes, as well as bakery items.

Not a Margarita, But... by Seed


This plant-based restaurant has more than just delicious dishes...they make a mean cocktail! Give this margarita-esque beverage a try during your social distancing. (P.S. Seed is offering free delivery on orders over $30 as well as pick up. Order on their website.)

Seed is located at 1330 Prytania Street.


Mull It Over by Toups' Meatery

Toups' Meatery

This modern Cajun restaurant is known for it's meat (obviously) and delicious brunch, lunch, and dinner menus. This mocktail by beverage director Bryson Downham is refreshing and just what you need after a long day of WFH. (P.S. Toups' Meatery is offering a smaller menu to-go, picked up curbside, or delivered.)

Copper Vine

Blackberry Honey Refresher by Copper Vine

Copper Vine

While you might come to Copper Vine for their 30 wines on tap (and sandwiches and popcorn and more), their cocktail selection shouldn't be overlooked. This non-alcoholic drink is sure to be refreshing as the days get hotter and longer.

Copper Vine is located at 1001 Poydras Street.
