Happy Mardi Gras, Alabama! We are only one day away from the most exciting moment of the Mardi Gras season—Fat Tuesday. Now, as we all know, alcohol tends to be a main attraction during Mardi Gras parties (for those who are of age, of course).

That’s why we curated this list of five Mardi Gras specialty drinks to try this Fat Tuesday. Act quickly, too, most of these drinks are only available during the Mardi Gras season, so when they’re out, they’re out until next year.
