Mix Up Your Mardi Gras with GameDay

The streets are bumpin’ on Bourbon during Mardi Gras more so than ever. And if you can’t make it to NOLA to experience the beads n’ bad behavior, bring the party to your home! Laissez les bons temps rouler with some GameDay Mardi Gras craft cocktails. We’ve curated a selection of New Orleans classics with an All-American twist for you to sip on throughout the Mardi Gras madness.

GameDay Creole Bloody Mary

It isn’t a proper Mardi Party without this Bourbon Street staple. This spicy, savory cocktail is surely a fan favorite. Spice things up with a dash or two of Worcestershire and hot sauce. Elevate this Creole classic by skewering some Cajun-seasoned shrimp, olives and okra.

GameDay Voodoo Juice

If you’ve ever been to New Orleans, you’ll remember the prevalence of Voodoo and psychic shops scattered across Bourbon Street. Some think it’s a hoax, while others buy into it.
