Mardi Gras Cocktail

Mardi Gras Cocktail

This morning I got in step with popular culture and found out about The Harlem Shake. Ridiculous, but pretty funny.


After all that, I think we need a drink.

This is the last of my little Mardi Gras series. We’ve got Tuesday’s menu covered. A Crêpe recipe yesterday (to celebrate the Pancake Tuesday part of Mardi Gras) and King Cake for dessert.

Now here is a sweet cocktail to kick off the meal. All the flavors of King Cake in liquid loveliness.

Ingredients:

Green, purple and gold sanding sugar, for the glass
2 ounces Lucky Player King Cake Vodka (or use 2 ounces vanilla-flavored vodka plus 2 drops almond extract)
1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
1/2 ounce Baileys Irish Cream
Ground cinnamon, for dusting

Directions:

1. Put a small pile each of green, purple and gold sanding sugar on a plate, keeping them separate. Moisten the rim of a martini glass, then press part of the rim into each colored sugar.

2. Combine the vodka, Grand Marnier and Baileys in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well, then strain into the prepared glass. Dust with cinnamon.

I love the band Harlem Shakes…quite different from the internet crazed one.

I think they disbanded in 2009, but left behind a cracking bunch of tunes.

My favorite. 18.

Get ready. Sing it. And dance, dance, dance.

“Right now”

Harlem Shakes-18

Check out Harlem Shakes on their Website. You can buy the music here.

Cheers!
