"Not only do I love making films, but I also deeply appreciate the artistry of a well-made cocktail," Martin says. "Through my site, I've experimented with my own cocktail recipes, interviewed some of the best bartenders out there, and researched the origins of the most beloved beverages. Through this process I inevitably came across the Sazerac, whose own evolution and story is full of folklore and magic."
You can meet Martin, who has been crowdfunding a portion of the
funds needed to finance the film, tonight from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at
Sweet Auburn Barbecue, during an Urban Explorers
New Orleans Sazerac Soirée
, where he'll be behind the bar demonstrating how the classic cocktail is made.
