Lally Brennan on eye openers, cocktail ice and 25-cent martinis

If you’ve been to New Orleans, or anywhere close, you know the Brennan name. Lally is one of the heiresses, but don’t mistake her for the Paris Hilton-type who’s been fed with a silver spoon. She has the same passion for food, service and general Southern charm as any Brennan that came before her.

What makes Lally unique, however, is her dedication to cocktails. She likes them strong and from the top shelf (recipe for her favorite drink, Milk Punch, at right), but her focus is on quality over quantity. Hear how Brennan's passion for a well-balanced cocktail has given Café Adelaide and Commander’s Palace differentiators in a city with no shortage of bars.
