It’s Fat Tuesday – time to celebrate in Big Easy style with a cocktail. Although there are some freezing temperatures in New York, bring on that 'who dat' attitude with a nice big drink. As the start of Mardi Gras, today in New Orleans people are wearing purple, green and gold, eating and drinking amazing Cajun and Creole foods, along with listening to some fantastic live music. Get in the spirit with a Fat Tuesday cocktail today! Cheers!
