Cocktails, Celebs, Stogies and More: THIS is New Orleans

From ESSENCE Music Festival, to bacon bourbon, to baller trucks (and everything in between), New Orleans has fun covered…and Jettasetting has the pics to prove it.

Photos of notables were taken by celebrity photographer Bennett Raglin of BP Photography who travels the world taking sizzling pics that can be seen in media outlets like  Rolling Stone, Elle Magazine, People Magazine…and now, Jettasetting!

Loving Jill Scott’s WHOLE look!  Those pants are everything…

Mary J. is owning the gold and white ( I am fully coveting her necklace and shades). PS: THAT is how you wear shorts…

Gene’s Daiquiri shop is the absolute hook up. This is a cash only, down home, neighborhood spot (at the corner of Elysian Fields and St. Claude) that serves up huge cups of frozen deliciousness for under $7.00.

See, told you, #BallerTruck (The South definitely believes in rims…)

Batch at The New Orleans Hyatt had bourbon infused with different flavors. They blew my mind with the bacon bourbon & the other flavors where just as wild!

Much love to Kyle at Batch who was pouring some goodness (that dude really loves his job)…

…and so does Kent, the head mixologist from the Windsor Court.  If you are nice to him, he’ll hook you up with an off-menu cocktail like my Seelbach (bourbon, orange liqueur, bitters, and a float of champagne).

Sometimes you just need a balcony break from the craziness…
