Being from New Orleans, I get very nostalgic on Mardi Gras. The parties, Bourbon Street, the King Cake, seafood galore, and the classic NoLa drinks (Hurricanes, Daiquiris and the like).
When I went to Jax Fish House to try the Who Dat, the Feisty Angelshare cocktail for the Mardi Gras themed installment, I didn’t think I’d be transported back to New Orleans through what was in my glass.
The Who Dat is a take on a Vieux Carre, which translates as “old square”—The French Quarter. The Vieux Carre is a NoLa classic literally named for one of it’s most popular destination and, like both the drink and the Quarter, the Who Dat is strong and a bit on the wild side.
Served over a single giant ice cube, the Who Dat featuring Feisty Saigon Cinnamon Oat Whiskey tastes like a King Cake. Like my favorite Mardi Gras treat, the Who Dat brings bold cinnamon flavor with a sugary sweetness. Rounded out with notes of almond and a smidgen of maraschino cherry, this drink will bring your taste buds to the heart of New Orleans, covered in beads and all.
Celebrate Fat Tuesday the right way with a Who Dat and some of Denver’s best seafood (more to come on Jax’s Fish House in a few days). For only $5 you can celebrate in style without breaking the wallet. You have until March 11 to celebrate with Angelshare Mardi Gras cocktails, so be sure to get out and try them all.
