It's Mardi Gras time of year!

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.

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?




VooDoo King Cocktail

1.5 oz Elk Rider Vodka
1oz Grape soda
1.5oz Limeade
Garnish with lime

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…
