Sinful Sippers

Mardi Gras is a time for hedonism to reign free, so why not make sure your cocktail menu is just as experimental and care free as any Mardi Gras party? Even if you’re not in New Orleans, Mardi Gras celebrates all of those great vices before customers give them up too fast for the Lenten season. Your Mardi Gras cocktail, in turn, should contain quaffable beverages that push the boundaries, giving guests some sinfully delicious sips of delightful self-indulgence.
