Are there any New Orleans specialty cocktails for Mardis Gras? http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7693...
I know about the Sazerac, but are there any others -- maybe even some of your own creation?
If you'd like, you may post here, or over on the Mardis Gras thread in Home Cooking. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/769372
the Roffignac made a big comeback a few years ago...being rescued from virtual extinction..but I have not seen or heard anyone order one lately. there is also the New Orleans version of teh French 75, made with gin as they do at Antoine's. Be very careful with this one.
Mardi Gras itself is always, for me associated with teh morning drinks of Bloodies, milk punches, Alexanders ..that line of country.
I was a member of a comparsa, the Gutter Rats, in the eastern Bolivia city of Santa Cruz. We existed pretty much on Pisco sours and Cuba Libres and beer. What a time that was!
