Booze-Filled Bead-Tossin' Holiday
Mardi Gras isn't a party without a few good cocktail recipes. These recipes are packed full of delicious flavor and perfect for your next party!
Every single year I say I'm going to travel to Louisiana for Mardi Gras. It's all about food, drinks and having fun. Why wouldn't I want to go? Now, while I'm a little too old to party heavy, I'm still young enough to know a good drink. These three cocktails are perfect for a calm night in or a wild night full of Mardi Gras debauchery.
Ramos gin fizz recipe
First up we have a Ramos gin fizz. Since it's made with raw egg whites, make sure you purchase pasteurized eggs so you don't have to worry. Also, the secret ingredient is definitely the orange flower water. While it might sound like an odd ingredient, it can normally be found near the flavored extracts in most gourmet grocery stores.
Cajun bloody mary recipe
Next up we have a spicy and flavorful bloody mary. This is not your everyday hangover cure. It's full of Cajun spice, horseradish and lots of spicy peppers. You're going to love this!
Sazerac cocktail recipe
Last, we have a classic Sazerac cocktail. It is, in fact, the official cocktail of New Orleans. It packs a punch so it is best enjoyed slowly. Although the cherry is not traditional, I love the slight sweetness it brings to drink.
