Cajun Bloody Mary — For a pretty presentation,
rub the rims of glasses with lemon wedges, and dip into a mixture of black pepper
and coarse salt.
Cajun Coffee — This is an old Cajun recipe.
The idea is to sip the coffee mixture through the cream, much like Irish coffee.
Some Cajuns like to mix a tablespoon of rum in with the coffee and molasses.
— A force
to be reckoned with, our Hurricane Cocktail is made with both dark and light
rum, as well as passion fruit, orange and lime juices. This is one of many famous
drinks in New Orleans.
Nectar Syrup — Nectar soda is an old New
Orleans flavor. This recipe for the syrup was printed in the Times-Picayune
newspaper in the 1950s or 1960s. You can use it to make snowballs, combine it
with club soda, or pour it over ice cream. Or use your imagination!
