Parade Time Cocktail
- Green, purple and gold sanding sugar, for the glass
- 2 ounces Lucky Player King Cake Vodka (or use 2 ounces vanilla-flavored vodka plus 2 drops almond extract)
- 1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
- 1/2 ounce Baileys Irish Cream
- Ground cinnamon, for dusting
Put a small pile each of green, purple and gold sanding sugar on a plate, keeping them separate. Moisten the rim of a martini glass, then press part of the rim into each colored sugar.
Combine the vodka, Grand Marnier and Baileys in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well, then strain into the prepared glass. Dust with cinnamon.
Lucky Player King Cake Vodka ($40 for 750 ml) is available online at crownwineandspirits.com.
