Happy Mardi Gras!

These three liquors combined make one tasty cocktail!
Chill your cocktail glass in the freezer before preparing your drink.
I like to use a martini glass.
Add a small amount of vodka to a plate or wide bowl and add all three colored sugars, in purple, green, and yellow to a plate.
Dip the rim of the chilled glass in the vodka.

To make the sugar just add 1-2 drops of food coloring to a 3 separate
tbsps of sugar and stir until combined.
Then dip a different section of the rim in a different color sugar.
 To make the cocktail start with a handful of ice cubes added to a shaker.
 Add 2oz Chila 'Orchata Cinnamon Cream Rum to the shaker.

Now add 2oz King Cake Vodka.
You could also use Vanilla Vodka.

And finally add 1/2 oz Amaretto.
Shake it up well in the cocktail shaker.
Strain and pour into the cocktail glass.
It's not done yet!
Mardi Gras is over the top so why not add a cube of
 skewered King Cake and even a traditional King Cake baby on top?! 
Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon and you are ready to celebrate!
Laissez les bon temps roulez !

  1. I would love to try the King Cake Cocktail! It looks so good!

  2. The cocktail you made looks really good! I would probably experiment with it a bit and try to make some sort of version of creamy banana daiquiri.

  3. Definitely think I'd try the King Cake Cocktail you posted! Always up for trying new cocktails!

  4. I'd either try the cocktail or try a dash in some hot cocoa.

  5. I would make a Warm Chila Toddy. It has been so cold here, it sounds good. I think too, it could also be done with either the milk or coffee depending on if you drink before sleeping or you need to stay awake. They have some interesting recipes on their site.

  6. We were going to make these drinks for my daughter's school gala which is mardi gras theme, where did you get the skewers?

    1. Hi there! This was 3 years ago but I got them at World Market. You could also check Party City and Amazon. I added the plastic babies on top separately. Enjoy :)
