Q102 goes MARDI GRAS with BROWN DERBY!!
WHAT A FUN CLASS WE HAD TODAY ON THE SHOW!!!!
What IS Mardi Gras? - WIKI says: "Mardi gras is French for Fat Tuesday, referring to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season, which begins on Ash Wednesday; in English the day is sometimes referred to as Shrove Tuesday, from the word shrive, meaning "confess."
To us, Mardi Gras is fun. It's all about the party & coming up in Springfield February 25th, the big Mardi Gras Crawl will be in full effect!
And if you wanna start early, Fat Tuesday is Tuesday the 21st!
Our house expert Brad from Brown Derby graced us with his precense once again & he was ALL ABOUT MARDI GRAS!
We had a lot of fun!
First up - New exotic liqueurs OR-G, KINKY & X-RATED.
WOW - I was shocked at how tasty & FUN these drinks were! All you need is a bottle of one, a cup & some ice & you'll be set.
KINKY- Tastes like pink lemonaid! I liked it! My second favorite!
X-RATED- SO TART - Really surprised me. I liked it but it was my least favorite of the three. WOW - TART TO THE MAX
OR-G---- One of my new favorite drinks. This stuff is AMAZING. I'll be sipping this in the sun this summer! Passion Fruit, Papaya, Mango - pure refreshment in a fun & wild bottle! GET SOME!
Brad mixed equal parts (1/2 oz.) of all the above bottles (El Set Tequila, OR-G, KINKY, X-RATED & Agave nectar) with Pro Bar Margarita Mix. This was one of THE BEST Margarita Ive had!!!! You must make it! Shake w/ ice & garnish with fresh lime! Perfecto!
I'll just cal this one Kool-Aid. I could sip it all day! Tasty & sweet & screams MARDI GRAS!
All you need to make one: 2oz Dark Rum, 2 oz Light Rum, we used Castaway Cove. Then add 4 oz of Pat O'Brians Hurricane Cocktail Mix. Shake & pour over ice in a tall glass. Garnish with orange slices and a maraschino cherry! Don't forget the straw!!
THE HOTTEST BEER (litterally) ON THE MARKET
GHOST FACE KILLAH is just that. I think it should be named "Kristen's Mouth Killah" - HOLY COW. It's one of the hottest things I've had in my mouth!! 30 Minutes later my mouth is still burning! The guys here liked it as a nolelty beer and we all played jokes on coworkers with it. Watch the video for the reactions! Pretty funny!! You can only buy this by the bottle - $3.99 @ Brown Derby & it's brewed in Colorado with 9 different peppers and created by a member of the Wu Tang Clan.
Worth a bottle to take to a party just for fun. And if you're brave - make a bloody beer with it!
Other fun Mardi Gras items:
Jager w/ a cool cover (same price as a regular bottle)
And Mardi Gras Bock..
This was a lot of fun! Brad & the entire crew at brown Derby know their stuff when it comes to your drinks!
Happy Mardi Gras! Kristen
