As Mardi Gras gets closer, it’s time to whip out the King Cake and stir up some cocktails. Carnival season is all about celebrating and indulging, so throw a party and laissez les bons temps rouler. If you can’t make it to the “Big Easy” to take part in the celebration, you can still bring the celebration to you by mixing up Hurricane cocktails. With Pat O’Brien’s Hurricane Cocktail Mix, you’ll be ready for a Mardi Gras party in no time.

To make a quart, add the mix packet to a quart of cold water and shake it together. Then fill a Hurricane glass with crushed ice, add 4 ounces of dark rum and 4 ounces of the liquid Hurricane mix, and garnish the glass with an orange slice.
