King Cake Bevvy
For this drink, Barry Himel, beverage director at Bourbon House, collaborated with Chef Sara Toth to combine the classic flavors of king cake in a creamy frozen cocktail, a la milk punch. The result contains Old New Orleans Rum, orgeat, Louisiana citrus and, of course, housemade vanilla gelato, topped off with purple, green and gold sprinkles for a little Mardi Gras color.
