Tales of the Cocktail will feature DeVito

For a guy who made the tabloids by appearing on TV's "The View" a couple of years ago apparently tipsy from too many limoncellos, actor/producer Danny DeVito has been making the most of an opportunity.

The New Jersey native, who first came to national acclaim in the TV series "Taxi," has been the frontman for Danny DeVito's Premium Limoncello, a liqueur made from the zest of organic lemons from Sorrento, Italy, as well as sugar, water and alcohol to create a 60-proof drink.

Now, he's been announced as a featured attendee for the 7th annual Tales of the Cocktail, the cocktail and culinary festival that celebrates the history and culture of dining and drinking in New Orleans that is set for July 8-12 this year.

The event will feature more than 100 events, including such things as a Seven Deadly Sins theme party, On the Fly Bartender competition, USBG Caipirinha Competition, Spirited lunch on Moonshine, The Great Whisk(e)y debate, and the Tales of the Cocktail Spirit Awards. Dinner pairings, cocktail parties, tastings and demonstrations fill the schedule.

DeVito, by the way, will be back on the FX channel's "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" this season.
