Big Easy Martini

As Mardi Gras is coming, I like to check my accounts, put on Jazz music, and try some recipes with New Orleans themes. Last month I made Mardi Gras Monkey Bread-Yum!

And last week I tried these Martinis Big Easy from a recipe in Louisiana Cookin '

. If you are a fan of Cajun and Creole cuisine, you need a subscription for this magazine. I have found many good recipes in it.

This Big Easy Martini is a combination of mango vodka, pepper vodka, sweet and sour mix and simple syrup. What the mango has to do with New Orleans, I'm not sure. It tastes good, so I'm not complaining. Pepper vodka definitely fits the Big Easy theme.

The flavor of this martini is a bit unusual at first. The first reaction on your palate will probably be… hmmm, I've never tried a flavor combination like this. But like any cocktail, it gets better and better with every sip. In the middle of my second, I really loved it. 🙂

If you are hosting a Mardi Gras party and want another drink to be served besides the hurricanes, try these Big Easy Martinis. They will definitely be a conversation starter.
