La Cour Kitchen & Bar: Bicentennial Cocktail

Celebrate the city of Jackson's 200th birthday with sips from one of two official Bicentennial Cocktails at La Cour, and stick around for the French-inspired ambiance and live piano. "The Soul Stirrer" is a blend of Cathead Bitter Orange vodka and sparkling cranberry seltzer, and the "Bicentenni" goes down smooth with Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka and triple sec. Check their Instagram for the latest happenings.
