Cocktails and bars

One has to do something to fill those long hours between meals in New Orleans, and my usual pastime of choice is drinking. :)

We're heading down for a few days for NYE, so what are the bars and cocktails we shouldn't miss? (Note: first person to suggest a Hand Grenade has to chug three of them.)

Some favorites of mine, from memory:
Sazerac at the Carousel Bar--We're staying at the Monteleone, so I'm sure we'll be hitting the Carousel pretty hard. The Sazerac was wonderful, but is there anything in particular I should order there?

Monsoon at Port of Call--not for the meek. A tastier, pink-colored take on the Hurricane, and a great choice if you want to get your swerve on early in the evening.

Hurricane at Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop--Nothing remarkable about the Hurricane itself, but the location is great.

Anything at dba--Incredible selection of beers and liquors on Frenchman Street.
