It’s the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday where people go all out…eat fattening foods, drink loads of alcky-hawl and basically just indulge before they begin the ritual fasting during Lent season.
Anyhow, when I think of Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday, my mind, of course goes to New Orleans.
So instead of being literal with this week’s cocktail and making a Hurricane, I decided to take it old fashioned.
The Whiskey Crusta is said to be one of the first cocktails to use citrus juice and is said to have originated in New Orleans in the 1800′s.
Look at me all history-ish.
Anyhow this is definitely an old person drink, which alternatively makes it a hipstery drink.
That’s how it works.
So be old, yet cool and drink it up.
The Whiskey Crusta.
