It's Mardi Gras time of year!

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Mardi Gras (aka Fat Tuesday) was traditionally a pagan celebration of spring and fertility. Eventually religious leaders turned it into a prelude to Lent. A time to feast and celebrate and binge on all of the wonderful foods you had so they wouldn’t go to waste when Lent started. Sounds like a good idea!

Although the height of Mardi Gras celebrations occur on a Tuesday a lot of celebrations, balls, parades and festivities start the week before. Here are a couple of our favorite Mardi Gras cocktails for you to serve at your own celebrations.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]Cajun Lemonade 

1oz HDC Sweet ghost Pepper Vodka
2oz Lemonade
Dash of tabasco

Put all ingredients in a shaker over ice, shake then pour into glass. Garnish with lemon

Fun fact: every wonder what those bead colors mean?

Fun Fact #2: Not only is it illegal to NOT wear a mask if you are on a parade float, it is also illegal to pee on anyone who is passed out on the street. You will be arrested for either offense. Good to know…[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
