Hey My Beautiful Beez,
As you know (or may not) I am having a Mardi Gras…laissez le bon temps rouler (Let the Good Times Roll) wedding. My wedding will be in arkansas so I think it will be so much fun to bring a little bit of the Big Easy to the Natural State. I have just about everything planned as far as my food is concerned my only issue is coming up with a signature drink. Since im doing a Mardi Gras theme of course the first drink that came to mine was a hurricane. But im not too sure…I would love to do some kind of punch since I will be bringing in my own alcohol to my venue so of course a punch would be the more affordable way to go. Can you guys help me out and give me some suggestions on what to do…FYI I am completely open to receipes!!! Thanks Beez!!!!

shawnda.benton08: hurricanes are not my first choice for a classy wedding. The fruit punch will stain if there are any spills AND it masks the taste of alcohol. With four shots of rum per hurricane (if properly made) people are going to get trashed fast if they aren’t aware.
The first and only time I was hungover / passed out drunk was when I had 1.5 hurricanes in NOLA. It wasn’t the first time I drank and I know how to handle my liquor but I didn’t realize how potent those were.

shawnda.benton08: Signature drinks often have nothing other than the name to do with the theme of the wedding.
Couples often choose a drink that they love and simply re-name it.
You could choose any punch that you love and name it Mardi Gras Madness.
