Fizz drinks were so wildly popular in the 1930’s and 40’s in New Orleans that there were bars dedicated exclusively to it. Governor Huey Long was known to have a penchant for the Ramos Gin Fizz which enhanced its popularity even more. This delicate, floral version really showcases the cucumber- and rose-infused flavors of Hendrick’s gin.
The unique flavor of Pusser’s British Naval Rum, which is aged a minimum of 3 years and is distilled according to a strictly regulated method, gives this Old-Fashioned a smooth and noble flavor profile.
This cocktail is a Southern take on the classic Whiskey Sour. Southern Comfort, originally crafted in New Orleans, has hints of fruit and spice with a whiskey background while Aperol has a flavor similar to Campari.
Pear, pomegranate and Prosecco! How can you go wrong with this combination? If you can’t find the Hellfire Bitters, feel free to substitute with Peychaud’s, though the flavor will not be quite the same.
If Hemmingway had made it to Mardi Gras (and maybe he did) he would have brought this Florida Keys classic with him. It’s just the thing you need while sitting on your porch watching the Mardi Gras parades roll by.
The “Mardi Gras Mambo” is a classic Mardi Gras anthem that is played on local radio stations nearly nonstop during the Carnival Season. Young and old, it gets everyone dancing. Should you want to get into the mambo mood yourself, try this delectable cocktail, made with pineapple-flavored vodka and the uniquely flowery St. Germain liqueur.
This refreshing and fruity cocktail is the perfect libation with which to toast Mardi Gras royalty. Make your own colored sanding sugar for the rim of the glass by stirring in a drop or two of food coloring.
