It wouldn't be Mardi Gras without a cocktail. And the drinks will certainly be flowing until 12 o'clock Tuesday night when the party officially ends.

Fortunately, even if you can't get to the Big Easy this weekend, you can celebrate like a local. We consulted Ti Adelaide Martin and Lally Brennan, authors of In the Land of Cocktails and owners of the legendary Commander's Palace and Café Adelaide, as well as their talented bar chef Lu Brow, about what festive recipes you should mix up.

As they say in the French Quarter, laissez les bon temps rouler!

Brandy Milk Punch

This creamy beverage is pure old-school NOLA and is served all over town. (It also works well with bourbon instead of the brandy.) Our recipe comes from acclaimed local chef John Besh.
