Cocktail Time – Mardi Gras Cocktails Special

Mardi Gras, which literally means Fat Tuesday, is the last day for Catholics to celebrate, before Ash Wednesday, and the start of Lent. It’s also the opportunity for a massive party in New Orleans (NOLA), a city which also has a special place in cocktail history. To help you celebrate Mardi Gras on the 17th of February, we have for you some special cocktails.
