New Orleans Hand Grenade

This week’s cocktail comes to us all the way from The Big Easy and is a staple on Bourbon Street, made famous by Tropical Isle – It’s the New Orleans Hand Grenade. With this past Tuesday being Fat Tuesday we thought it was only appropriate to celebrate in true Mardi Gras style with this sweet, punch like beverage that packs a serious punch. The Hand Grenade is a perfect signature drink for a Mardi Gras party or themed event. It’s a great drink for get togethers and it’s simple to make in batch form since it’s all equal parts of the 5 ingredients – now if we could just figure out where to order those cute little glasses to pour this bad boys into.
