About the Author

T. Cole Newton is the owner and proprietor of Twelve Mile Limit, the celebrated cocktail dive bar in the Mid City neighborhood of New Orleans. Originally from Washington, DC, Cole moved to New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina to volunteer full time with Americorps. A bartender in college, he returned to the trade at Commander's Palace and opened his own bar, Twelve Mile Limit, in 2010. In 2019, Cole opened a second bar, the Domino, on Saint Claude Avenue. Cole's writing on bar ownership can be found on the Tales of the Cocktail and Neat Pour websites, and he hosts a podcast with fellow veteran bartender Steve Yamada called A Round With Steve and Cole. Cole is also the current Vice President (and former President) of the New Orleans chapter of the United States Bartenders' Guild.


For creative takes on cocktails galore, plus wisdom gleaned from behind the bar, it's hard to beat the delightful recipes and commentary from irreverent long-time Crescent City drink-slinger T. Cole Newton... Newton's collection brims with personality, stories, and recipes, with thoughtful reflections on anti-racism and gentrification, and combatting sexual harassment in the service industry. Self-effacing humor and dive-y aesthetics make it enjoyable to peruse--and readers can drink artful cocktails while optionally coloring in illustrations from Bazil Zerinsky and Laura Sanders.
--Katie Weed, Shelf Awareness

Newton's book is an original.... The best bars are rarely memorable for the drinks alone, but more so for the conversations that unspool in unexpected ways with strangers seated nearby. Especially if those conversations take a sudden turn toward the unusual or difficult. Newton's book follows that path.
--Wayne Curtis, The Daily Beast
