Tracy Browning, Executive Director at Ascension Parish Tourism Commission, said, “This trail will
provide an exciting way to support Ascension Parish’s local establishments and drive business through a typically slow time.”

Before you start your journey on the Sweet Spot Cocktail Trail, you must get a passport. You can get that passport “at all the participating establishments, the visitor center and on the website,” according to the Ascension Parish Tourism Commission. You can then go to any of the twelve places and buy the cocktail. The participating establishment will then give you a stamp for your passport. The Ascension Parish Tourism Commission said, “Once you have eight stamps in your passport, you can receive a special gift at the visitor center by bringing your passport to be validated.” When you do that, you will have the chance to win a grand prize.

“This is a fantastic, innovative way to explore some of the fine establishments in Ascension Parish what better way to start the summer?” followed Parish President Clint Cointment. The brand, Louisiana’s Sweet Spot is a mix of history and culture. The fusion of diverse influences sweetens the area’s rich history of agriculture, art, music, folk and culinary traditions and heritage. Nestled
between two major cities, Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Ascension Parish is truly Louisiana’s Sweet Spot.”

The trail is scheduled to end on Monday, July 31.
