365 New Orleans: NOLA Sips


365 New Orleans is focused on local artists and businesses. Every single day, for one year, a new person or place will be highlighted. Follow along on Instagram: @365NewOrleans 


Stricen Carter, the owner of NOLA Sips, is originally from Houston but has been calling New Orleans home for 5 years. NOLA Sips is not only an adult beverage company (because they do look like adult Capri Suns!) – they also have non-alcoholic versions of their drinks too. Stricen started this out of her house and now they have to rent a kitchen to keep up with the demand.

While they are a newer business, Stricen and her mom are killing it. You can find them outside of concerts letting out from the Superdome sometimes, too!

They offer delivery, party packages, and even hotel delivery if you’re just in town for the weekend.



1. Tell me about NOLA Sips.

We are a beverage company that offers fun and festive flavors – just like the city! We are a bright brand and not all of our drinks are alcoholic.  

We have flavors like Westbank Watermelon, Uptown Mango, and Downtown Lemonade.


2. How long have you been in business? 

Just a little over a year!


3. How do people find you online? 

Instagram @nolasips and Facebook! These are the best places to find us.


4. What is lesser known about your business that you wish more people knew? 

We make wonderful, organic smoothies. We wanted a brand that could be a part of a church crowd too – so we started to make smoothies for them and it grew!


5. Lagniappe Info. 

This business is just me and mom running it. The hustle is just passed down through the generations of our family. I have always been an entrepreneur, I was selling cookies in high school. But then I started creating these drinks and it’s really taking off.

We teamed with We Dat food truck and we sell a lot through them too.

We have now done over 140 events with it just being us and a cooler.
