In New Orleans, the cocktail is king. It’s the birthplace of the Sazerac and the Hurricane, and where the Tales of the Cocktail festival is held every summer. 

To make it easier for nondrinkers, the arts organization Creativity Collective has created seven mocktail recipe that honor the city’s cocktail culture while giving options to those looking for alcohol-free alternatives. The organization makes cards for recipes like the Fauxdi Gras, Faux-De-Lis, and Fauxret, that can be downloaded and presented when ordering drinks. They are also available to restaurants and bars at no cost.

Recipe cards are available at

Here’s the recipe for the Faux-de-Lis:
