So, I was thinking about the whole Mardi Gras idea and it’s pretty cool!  Here’s some recipes that I found online and I just had to share them with you!

BUTTERCREAM MARTINI!!

Ingredients

Makes: 1 drink
  • 11⁄2 ounces half-and-half or light cream
  • 1 ounce spiced rum, Captain Morgan® Original Spiced Rum
  • 1⁄2 ounce butterscotch schnapps
  • 1⁄2 ounce vanilla schnapps
  • Ice cubes
  • Candy confetti

Directions

In a cocktail shaker, combine half-and-half, rum, buttersotch schnapps, and vanilla schnapps. Add ice; cover and shake until very cold. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with candy confetti

HURRICANE!!

Ingredients

Makes: 1 drink
  • 3 ounces passion fruit juice
  • 3 ounces mango juice
  • 2 ounces sweet-and-sour mix
  • 3⁄4 ounce dark rum, Myers’s®
  • 1⁄2 ounce spiced rum, Captain Morgan® Original Spiced Rum

Directions

In a cocktail shaker, combine passion fruit juice, mango juice, sweet-andsour mix, dark rum, and spiced rum. Add ice. Cover, shake; serve.

I also came across the ideas below from other ladies who have thrown a Mardi Gras party.

Serve some New Orleans style snacks or meal; rice and beans with spicy sausage. Use fancy eye masks and have folks dress up in fancy attire. Lots of beads are a must! Serve a special “king” cake complete with luck baby inside. “Hurricane” punch I’ve heard is suited. For table snacks, have (multi-colored) M&Ms or Skittles, hot spicy peanuts, and type of “beaded” candy.

The mask idea is cool, I think you can pick them up at your local party supply store or even get some offline.

If you have ideas for a bunco party, let me know!  I love to hear new ideas and fun themes!

The hubby is out of town still, so I have put the kids to bed and now the dogs are staring at me wanting their dinner and maybe a few treats.  🙂  He comes home tomorrow just in time for the 3 day weekend.  🙂
