The powdered sugar was poured on top by the CUP (like, measuring cup) full!! New Orleans was amazing. It just seemed that everywhere you turned there were artists and culinary geniuses at every corner.

The margarita was like this nasty tart/tangy UGH and I thought “I’ll try the hurricane….you know, for the experience.” bad choice. Stick to what you know. Or regret spending the $9 on a nasty, cheap powdered mix on a glob of ice. :) (more…)
