DRINK: Gene’s Curbside Daiquiris

DRINK: Gene’s Curbside Daiquiris

If you miss Gene’s Curbside Daiquiris on the corner of Elysian Fields, you really aren’t looking: The building is the color of Pepto-Bismol and is more than ready to meet your frozen, slushy drink needs, 24 hours a day. Yes, there are innumerable places to grab-and-go this frozen New Orleans treat across the city, but Gene’s no-frills commitment to a deep roster of flavors (from classic strawberry to nebulously named options like Kid Kid Juice and Booty Call) and a menu with all drinks broken down into categories like “Buzz” and “Strong” almost guarantees a night starting out at Gene’s will be one you probably won’t remember.

The Drink to Drink: The Soulja Slim—named after the deceased New Orleans rap legend—combines three already potent flavors (including the ominous 190 Octane) for a tangerine-hued, mind-electrifying experience.

Know Before You Go: Daiquiri hangovers can be particularly brutal due to all that sugar, so proceed with caution.
