Mardi Gras, also known as Fat Tuesday, is a celebration that takes place before the start of the Christian season of Lent. The festival has its roots in ancient pagan celebrations and has been celebrated in various forms for over thousands of years. Mardi Gras is known for its colorful parades, vibrant costumes, and of course, delicious food and drinks. One of the most popular drinks during Mardi Gras is the Hurricane, a sweet and fruity cocktail that is often enjoyed by revelers as they celebrate the last day of indulgence before the start of Lent.
As a lover of all things delicious and boozy, I was beyond thrilled to discover Kill Devil Hills Rum during a fall trip to the Outer Banks. From the moment I took my first sip of their smooth and golden rum, I was smitten. So, when the opportunity arose to craft a cocktail using their Gold Rum, I jumped at the chance to share this amazing spirit with friends and family. And what better occasion to celebrate than Mardi Gras, the ultimate party for food and drink lovers everywhere!
