With Fat Tuesday, the biggest day of the Mardi Gras celebration, just a week away, check out these festive cocktails to drink in honor of the special occasion!

We’ve paired Hendrick’s, Lillet, Solerno and Milagro cocktails together to represent the trio of official Mardi Gras colors – purple representing justice, gold representing power and green representing faith – which were suggested by the Russian Grand Duke Alexei Alexandrovich Romanov in 1872 during his visit to New Orleans.

Whether you’re at home wishing you were at Bourbon Street, or in New Orleans celebrating, these creative libations are festive and delicious!

Cheers!
