The New Orleans Fruit Tree Project holds a "Citrus Celebration" Jan. 28

Posted By on Thu, Jan 15, 2015 at 11:39 AM


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 second annual "Citrus Celebration" fundraiser might just be the event of your dreams.

On January 28, the fruit-themed event will feature a citrus cocktail competition, food trucks and a way to help grow the city's "edible urban canopy."

The cocktail competition is open to both professional and amateurs, featuring drinks that spotlight Louisiana citrus. Attendees are invited to sample the creations.

All proceeds from the event will go to the non-profit's "Planting for the Future" program, which aims to increase the edible urban canopy in New Orleans. The goal is to add 50 additional fruit trees in spring 2015 to the 50 planted during fall 2014.
