Need something cold to drink?  There’s a whole list of Hurricane Recipes you could whip up:

Or you could try out a King Zulu, made with King Cake Vodka:


Or, even try this frozen version that I whipped up last night:



1 cup ice

1 cup fresh pineapple

3-4 oz King Cake vodka

1 oz lime juice

3-4 large fresh mint leaves

2 dashes cinnamon (it brings out the king cake flavor)


Blend together until frothy, and enjoy!  Garnish with fresh mint and a wedge of pineapple that’s been dipped in purple sugar.

Perfect for studying!  (Which is why I didn’t have time to make a King Cake this year)
