From savory to sweet, the above recipes embody Mardi Gras and are a perfect way to celebrate the holiday this year!

Don't forget to stock up on your favorite natural soda. All that cooking is going to 

have you thirsty, and our refreshing happy drink is just the thing you need to satisfy your sparkling water cravings. 

Decorate With Green, Gold And Purple

These three colors are the traditional colors of Mardi Gras. They are said to represent justice, faith and power. 

When I think of green, I think of our tasty, caffeine-free apple soda, but for this holiday I will put that thought aside! 

If you want to get in the spirit for Mardi Gras 2021, try adorning your home with green, gold, and purple decorations.

You may not be able to attend a parade and get beads this year, but your local dollar store is sure to have some that you can use spice up your home for the occasion! 

Mix A Mardi Gras Inspired Drink

This is a perfect opportunity to jazz up that New Wave Soda you have in the fridge and mix it into a cocktail for an at-home Mardi Gras 2021 celebration!

Although this recipe does not call for one of our green soda soft drinks, it still makes a great cocktail. 

Grab the following ingredients:

  • 1 oz dark rum
  • 1 oz light rum
  • 1 tbsp. passion fruit flavored syrup
  • 3 oz of grapefruit soda
  • 2 tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 cup ice
  • green sanding sugar
  • simple syrup 


Now for the fun part! 

  1. Add the simple syrup to a plate, and then add the green sanding sugar to another plate. Grab a cocktail glass and roll the rim in the syrup, and then the sugar. This will coat the rim with the sweet green sugar. 
  2. Fill your glass with ice. 
  3. In a shaker add the liquors, lime juice and passion fruit syrup. Shake well.
  4. Pour the mixture into your glass and top with the grapefruit soda. Enjoy!
