The Bar is OPEN {Mardi Gras 2013}


The bar is now open for a weekend of Uptown parades with FRIENDS.


This year, J & I are offering the usual beers and white wines, but we always offer a signature seasonal cocktail too.


This year’s cocktail is the majestic purple Mardi Gras Mambo.


The recipe for this cocktail served in my beehive dispenser is as follows:

1- 40 oz. bottle of grape juice

1- 2L bottle of lemon-lime flavored soda

1- 2L bottle of ginger ale

1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

750 mL vodka (optional…LOL)

The recipe is a delicious one to serve and perfect when garnished with a green lime and yellow lemon. Ahhhhh, the colors of Mardi Gras… it doesn’t get better than this.

Cheers to the Mardi Gras season!


Today brings a day chock full of parades. BFFs Sal (Thoth) and Randy (Bacchus) ride today. I can’t wait to see what treasures each has for us. I hope the rain forecasted for today holds off. We too have lots of FRIENDS stopping by all day.
