Jolene of Jolene's Recipe Journal invited the Festive Foodies to join her in celebrating Mardi Gras saying "Let the good times (and good food) roll!!!"

I think it's not a party without cocktails so that's what I'm sharing today.  Let's see what the others have brought to the Carnival.......

    I served these Zombie Cocktails up with some Cajun Nachos that I made for another Mardi Gras event.  It was a perfect pairing.  I am having a Mardi Gras Dinner Party/Game Night on Saturday and these cocktails and Nachos will be making another appearance.

    I love any excuse for a party and I love celebrating other cultures.  NOLA is one of my favorite with their Cajun and Creole foods.  In the past we have celebrated with Steak Grillades, Muffaletta Salad, Shrimp Etoufee, and Hurricanes.  Now I'm excited for next year so I can try some of these recipes being shared today.

    Stay tuned for the Ribs, Shrimp and Pecan Rice recipes.  I did share the Chocolate Devil's Food Cake  on Sunday.  King Cakes are a traditional Mardi Gras dessert but can also be served at Christmas. And Beignets are a wonderful way to start the day on Fat Tuesday.

    1. We love rum based cocktails, definitely have to give this one a try! I also need to check out those Cajun Nachos, yum!

    2. Now this is my type of cocktail! I'm all about the rum!

    3. Your cocktail looks amazing and sounds awesome too! Your party sounds like it will be a fun time for everyone!

    4. These might show up in our house after work today! I think I've made some Zombie jam that you could just stir into an alcohol mix. Almost instant Zombies. I will have to look back in the archives.
