Three years ago, the Uptown cocktail bar Cure opened to the public. “It’s been a wild ride,” said owner Neal Bodenheimer. “We’ve been able to explore what we think is cool and interesting, and other people have wanted to come along for the ride.”

On Sunday, February 26, the Freret Street bar brings back its opening menu to celebrate the anniversary. Serious cocktail fans, who now expect Cure to feature original drinks with exotic ingredients, might be surprised by how cautious the bar was at first. That original menu had a couple of well-known cocktails, like the Aviation and the Hemingway daiquiri, a few lesser seen classics, such as the Opera and the Alfonso, and one original: a French 75 variation called the Howitzer.

The anniversary menu will also include Cure originals that have been favorites of the bartenders and the customers. All drinks on the special menu are $6.
