    Mixologist Ed Diaz is a pioneer of the modern New Orleans mixology scene. Inspired by the Violet Hour in Chicago, Diaz signed a lease off Rampart Street, and opened Bar Tonique in 2008. His first menu debuted with 40 cocktails (a number roughly intact today). He was striving for consistency; he wanted to train his bartenders on all 40 drinks. People thought he was crazy. The formula worked, though, and some of the city’s best mixologists trained under Diaz before leaving and spreading craft cocktail love to dens of their own. Ultimately, Bar Tonique is an intimate neighborhood bar, where drink quality isn’t compromised for its French Quarter ZIP code.
