Ojen Cocktail

History For Ojen Cocktail

Ojen was first made in southern Spain in the mid-1800s. New Orleans, a city with a penchant for licorice-flavored drinks, became the brand’s most ardent supporter.

Ojen became popular as an absinthe substitute in the mid-twentieth century, and it had a special cache during Carnival season.

The Ojen drink was popular among New Orleans’ upper crust; in the late 1940s, Brennan’s, a legendary French Quarter restaurant, included an Ojen Frappe on their brunch menu.
