Mardi Gras Cocktails!

In New Orleans there`s nothing but a giant party right now with both the Mardi Gras and Superbowl celebations going on with the big game being played tomorrow and then it´s just a week until Mardi Gras and that means it´s high time for me to come up with this years Mardi Gras cocktails.

Last year the King Cake vodka was launched and i wrote two posts about it and then later this year in the fall the Fleur de Lis vodka was launched by the same company – Lucky Player Vodka.

Maybe a few of the drinks i make here can be of inspiration to celebrate this years Mardi Gras whether you are in New Orleans or not,  a Mardi Gras party can be thrown anywhere!

Just bring on the right attitude, some great Louisiana cooking and put on the Mardi Gras music and don`t forget the drinks! Let the good times roll!

  • Hello,

    I just started a website candy and alcohol website almost a year ago now. It’s about mixing candy with vodka and reviewing what it tastes like. I document it with step by step guides from how to make things like Campino candy vodka, to bubble gum vodka.

    I was curious if you would like to do a link exchange between our websites. My website is http://CandyBooze.com and I update it fairly often, so long as I have different candies. For the first year we have made it up to almost 150,000 views, and expect that to grow for the next year.

    Thank you for your time,
    Gordon
