If visions of kumquat spritzers and blood orange Old Fashioneds dance in your head on a regular basis, The New Orleans Fruit Tree Project's (www.nolafruit.org) second annual Citrus Celebration fundraiser is for you. From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 28 at Propeller (4035 Washington Ave.), the fruit-themed event features a citrus cocktail competition, food trucks and a way to support the city's "edible urban canopy."
The cocktail competition is open to professionals and amateurs and features drinks highlighting Louisiana citrus. Attendees are invited to sample the creations.
All proceeds from the event go to the nonprofit's "Planting for the Future" program. Its goal is to plant 50 fruit trees in spring 2015. It planted 50 trees during fall 2014.
