Just up Bienville St. from Arnaud's restaurant, the French 75 is an oasis of mixology in the sea of saccharine frozen drinks and "huge-ass beers." Renowned bartender Chris Hannah is more knowledgeable about cocktails than Walker Percy was about literature. In fact, ask him to mix up a Walker Percy, a signature cocktail of his.
