Mardi Gras 2015 {Hot Buttered Spiced Rum}

There are little signs of Mardi Gras showing up.
Flags hanging on main streets.

Floats out of storage.

Barricades ready to line parade routes.

Last year Mardi Gras was cold and rainy.
There were icicles hanging from my mask.

This time of year you never know what you're gonna get in Louisiana.  Could be warm and sunny...hot even.  Could be cold and rainy.

Beer is the unofficial official drink of Mardi Gras.  
But incase it's cold and icy like last year, I'm thinking Hot Buttered Spiced Rum might be my unofficial official drink of Mardi Gras.

Bayou Rum out of Lacassine, LA produces a spiced rum that is good for buttering up and mixing with brown sugar and cinnamon.

It comes in a really cool bottle too.  I like the raised state of Louisiana just under the neck.

And the old fashioned cork embossed with a man in a pirogue is my favorite design feature.

A warm mug of hot buttered spiced rum sounds like a good way to start Mardi Gras.

Note: Bayou Rum has not compensated me in any way, shape, or form.  They know nothing of this blog.  I just like their rum.  FYI: they make a satsuma rum too.
