In his cookbook, Treme: Stories and Recipes from the Heart of New Orleans, Elie includes a recipe with a grapefruit and honey base called N'awlins Nectar. When I hosted him at Bayou Bakery, I used his base idea and jazzed it up a bit with fresh rosemary and jalapeños to give it that NOLA spice. BACKYARD NOLA SWINGERS (Serves 8) 2 cups Wildfl ower honey 2 quarts Grapefruit juice 8 Mason jars (16-oz.) 1 bottle Dark rum (750-ml.) 8 sprigs Fresh rosemary 1 medium Jalapeño pepper, thinly sliced Stir honey and ¾ cup water together in a large container. Add grapefruit juice, and stir well; cover and chill about 1 hour. For each serving, fi ll mason jar two-thirds full with ice. Add ¼ cup rum, and fi ll jar with grapefruit juice mixture. Pour drink into a shaker, and add 1 sprig rosemary and 1 slice jalapeño pepper; cover and shake 10 seconds. Pour mixed drink back into jar; add more ice, if desired.
