This year’s Mardi Gras, or “Fat Tuesday,” was Feb. 13 in New Orleans, marking the last day of a Carnival season of celebrations down south. Didn’t make the trip? Why not don your purple, green and gold right here in Boston.
– Throw your own Fat Tuesday dance party with a healthy mixture of jazz, blues and Cajun music.
– Deck yourself out in some colorful beads or a masquerade costume!
– Make big easy cocktails like ramos gin fizz or the hurricane cocktail.
– Whip up a delicious king cake, the traditional Mardi Gras dessert. They don’t call it Fat Tuesday for nothin’!
