Mardi Gras Imbibing

Today is Fat Tuesday in New Orleans, and rather than drinking cocktails of the Hurricane variety, we suggest putting the spirits in your home bar to better use. Whether or not you're in the Big Easy celebrating, a nod to Mardi Gras provides the perfect excuse for a cocktail, especially a New Orleans classic, like a Ramos Gin Fizz or a Sazerac. Of course, it's also Carnaval time in Brazil, so if cachaça is more your speed, then mix yourself a Brazilian Wax cocktail (we promise the drink is better than the name). There are lots of other great recipes to check out on our new website—just search for your spirits of choice to find what you're looking for. Cheers!
