Festive Mardi Gras Cocktails

Even if you can’t get to New Orleans

Mardis Gras! The parades, the food, the king cake, the cocktails, and those adorable little umbrellas! We may not be able to make it to New Orleans but that doesn’t mean we can’t throw our own mini-Mardi Gras celebration. Your local party store has beads and masks, you just provide the grub, drinks, and good times.

Of course, you need to have hurricanes but we have some other delicious cocktails for you to try too.
