If you’d like to recreate a night of carousing on Bourbon Street, throw a Mardi Gras party or just enjoy some New Orleans-style fun at home, you can make a hand grenade cocktail yourself with ingredients found at any liquor store. So grab some Mardi Gras beads, put on some party music and let the good times roll, or “laissez les bons temps rouler,” as they say in the French Quarter. Add this to my Recipe Box.
1. Fill shaker with ice. Pour in rum, gin, vodka, melon liqueur and everclear. Add sugar to taste.
2. Shake the mixture until thoroughly combined.
3. Fill highball glass with ice.
4. Strain cocktail mixture into the highball glass. Enjoy!
