What Your Mardi Gras Drink Says About You
The two-month marathon of debauchery otherwise known as Mardi Gras is coming to an end tomorrow, aka Fat Tuesday.
But before we settle in for the Lenten season, we’ve put together a handy guide to what your Bourbon Street imbibing is really telling those beautifully beaded sirens surrounding you.
Presenting the definitive guide to what your Mardi Gras cocktail says about you:
The Hand Grenade: “Siiiiick, brah. I can drink four drinks at once.”
The Hurricane: “It’s not my first time.”
The One That Comes in a Test Tube: “My fake ID totally worked!”
The Sazerac: “I appreciate the subtle science and fine art that is cocktailing.”
The Creole Bloody Mary: “Well, last night escalated quickly. I mean—that really got out of hand fast.”
The Daiquiri: “I’m probably a newb, but I’m trying desperately to blend in.”
The Can of Beer: “I’m over the French Quarter and all the damn tourists.”
The Brandy Milk Punch: “I’m starting the day off bright and early.”
The Flaming Dr Pepper: “I’m at Gold Mine.”
