King Cake Cocktail

King Cake Cocktail by Ally Jean

Happy Mardi Gras, ya’ll! Tomorrow is Fat Tuesday and it’s something we love to celebrate in our family.

Every year, my parents send us a King Cake from a local bakery near their home in Louisiana and it’s always a highlight of our dreary winter. I’m always looking for ways to keep the spirit of Mardi Gras alive year-round. So when I learned that Pinnacle Vodka makes a seasonal King Cake flavor of their premium spirit, you better believe I put on my mixology hat and started mixing up cocktails.

This one is a personal favorite. It tastes like sweet honey-glazed cinnamon King Cake that’s stuffed with a lemon glaze. It’s sure to be a hit at your Mardi Gras festivities tomorrow!
