There are a lot of places in Milwaukee to celebrate Mardi Gras this year, but one of the best is Big Daddy's Brew & Que.

The restaurant, located in Bayshore Town Center, hosts a big Mardi Gras celebration from Vendredi (Friday) Feb. 27 through Mardi (Tuesday), March 4.

In addition to live music by the Stubby Chubbz Brass Band on Fat Tuesday itself, the event will feature a New Orleans-style menu and some specialty cocktails by master mixologist Adam Seger.

We asked Seger for a preview of some of those cocktails and here's what he shared.

Big Daddy's Hurricane

Nothing says "Laissez Les Bonnes Tempes Roulez" like a New Orleans Hurricane from Big Daddy's," said Seger. "With three kinds of Rum and easy to drink fruit juices, it will get you in the Mardi Gras mood in no time."

  • 1 ounce dark rum
  • 1 ounce light rum
  • 1 ounce pomegranate juice
  • 1 ounce passion fruit syrup
  • 1 ounce pineapple juice
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1 ounce orange juice

Serve over ice in a tall glass to 3/4 full. Top with Ginger ale. Garnish with mint, pineapple wedge, orange slice and a cherry.

Big Daddy's Sweet Tea Lemonade

"Sweet Tea Lemonade is as quintessential south as it gets, but spike it with some booze and you know it's Mardi Gras time," Seger said.

  • Fill a mason jar with ice
  • Add 1.5 ounce Death's Door White Whiskey
  • Add 1.5 ounce honey syrup (whisked honey with a touch of hot water)
  • Fill with equal parts Earl Grey iced tea and fresh lemonade
  • Garnish with mint sprig and lemon wheel
  • 3/4 ounce Hum (Hibiscus-ginger rum)
