Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Short post - Happy Mardi Gras!

This is rapidly turning into I Heart New Orleans blog, so after this I'm going to scale back on the New Orleans posts for a while (teaser: Phoenix is next!).

DB~ and I had a makeshift in-house Mardi Gras tonight. Originally we were going to go to Hofbrauhaus (of all places) as they were having a Mardi Gras celebration, complete with a Cajun-themed menu....but we got bummed out by the continuous amounts of snowfall. We stayed in and made Hurricanes for ourselves (I'm actually typing this with a slight buzz thanks to 2 of these potent drinks).

The pic is a list of the ingredients of a Hurricane, minus the pineapple juice. Here's the list for 1 single serving Hurricane:
1 oz white rum
1 oz dark rum
1 oz Bacardi 151
3 oz orange juice
3 oz pineapple juice
1/2 oz Grenadine
crushed ice

Wish I (we) were on Bourbon Street!
