Idea 1: Bayou Bloody Mary
Keep your Mardi Gras party guests overnight and test out this hair-of-the-dog brunch classic. To make a Bayou Bloody Mary, add ingredients to a tumbler filled with ice: 1 oz. vodka, 6 oz. tomato juice, 5 drops Tabasco sauce, 3 drops Worcestershire sauce, 1 pinch prepared horseradish, 1 pinch celery salt, 1 pinch ground pepper, 1 dash lemon juice. Garnish with celery sticks and Mardi Gras drink picks. For more Southern personality, add a few crawfish tails and some extra spice on the rim.
