If there is ever a time to lower your inhibitions, it's now. This isn't any ordinary Tuesday. It's Mardi Gras, and -- even if we're a thousand miles away from New Orleans -- we're here to party. We're doing it all: practicing our drawl (bless our hearts), slopping up gumbo, and eating enough King Cake to find the baby in one sitting. And, because a celebration is only as good as its worst drink, we'll need to find something to wash it all down with. Whether you're fighting through the purple, gold, and green haze of beads and floats or toasting Fat Tuesday from the couch, we've got you covered. Here are 10 cocktails that will provide you with a taste of carnival, wherever you are.
Laissez les bons temps rouler!
