This Voodoo daiquiri inspired by Lafitte’s Olde Blacksmith Shop Bar on Bourbon Street in New Orleans will put a spell on you!
Today marks the end of Southern Decadence in New Orleans, LA. Last year Bob and I were unintentionally in town for it and ran into some friends from Memphis and had a complete blast!
If watching your newly minted husband get relentlessly hit on isn’t the best way to spend your honeymoon, I don’t know what is. I just love how comfortable he is in his own skin and being able to play along. So when our friends said it wouldn’t be the same without us this year, we seriously considered going but it didn’t work out.
Instead I decided to mix up my very own Voodoo Daiquiri aka Purple Drank from Lafitte’s Olde Blacksmith Shop Bar on Bourbon Street. Last year, Bob didn’t get the memo that you shouldn’t have more than a one (hello Everclear).
Not only did he have more than one, he ordered the large. Twice. And possibly two smalls, we’re not entirely sure O:-). But we made it back to out ArBNB just fine with our memories in tact. This time we will enjoy a glass in the comfort of our own home. ;-)
