Mardi Gras.


By definition Mardi Gras is the time of decadence before the Catholic observance of Lent. Lent is the celebration of Christ’s time spent in the tomb and resurrection, which spans from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday. 40 days. During those 40 days you are supposed to give up something you love to show your gratitude for Christ’s ultimate sacrifice. So, Mardi Gras is the party Catholics throw before they have to sacrifice there most cherished vise.

In lay terms, it’s an excuse to get bomb ass drunk.

In New Orleans it gets so crazy people are relieving themselves in the streets… In front of cops. The cops don’t do anything about it because they are making sure no one is getting murdered. People routinely sleep in their cars because they can’t find a bed. I hear it’s a lot of fun.

In New Orleans there’s a bar called Pat O’brian’s. They just call it Pat Oh’s. They sell a Yard Long drink. It measures a Yard long. That’s 3 feet, or .914 Meters. In it they put what’s called a Hurricane. Its a Rum based drink. It will get you good and wasted. Tradition says that it’s called a hurricane because you drink them before a huge Gulf of Mexico Hurricane, because a natural disaster is a great time to throw a party. I’m not kidding. Google hurricane party, it’s a real thing.

To Make your own Hurricane, take:
1 oz Bacardi Superior
1 oz Myer’s Jamaican Dark Rum
1 oz Barcardi 151 Rum (you can light this on fire!)
3 oz Orange Juice
1/2 oz Grenadine Syrup
Crushed Ice
Fruit Flag of Pineapple, Orange slice, and Maraschino Cherry

I suggest drinking this in the company of alot of friends or raiders. Everyone needs to be drinking Hurricanes. Trust me, it is a social lubricant like no other!
