Mardi Gras might be canceled in Louisiana due to COVID-19, but toasting the Carnival season isn’t. Mardi Gras season is when Louisianian’s motto is to the ‘let the good times roll’ and that usually means partying, eating, and drinking before the Lenten season starts.

JT Meleck

Louisiana’s own, JT Meleck Vodka, suggests you try the ‘Meleck Masquerade’ to get your at-home party started.  JT Meleck’s award winning grain-to-rice vodka is the perfect way to celebrate Fat Tuesday.

Grab your Mardi Gras beads, your purple, green and gold attire, and a martini glass to get the party started. Here is the recipe for the Mardi Gras Meleck Masquerade:

Meleck Masquerade

1-1/2 oz. JT Meleck Vodka

1/2 oz. Blue Curacao

1/2 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice

1/2 oz. Simple Syrup

2-1/2 oz. Cranberry Juice

Shake with ice. Serve over fresh ice. Garnish with lemon twist.

Large gatherings may be canceled this year, but you can’t cancel King Cakes, Mardi Gras Music, Decorations, and the cocktails.
