At Jewel of the South, Chris Hannah, a bartender and co-owner, pays homage to the Big Easy. This to-go drink is a tribute to New Orleans music legend Dr. John. Hannah also makes a variation called the Rebennack, which was Dr. John’s last name. That cocktail subs rye for Bourbon and orange Curaçao for amaro.
