As a matter of fact, you can.
Being the curious types, we tried it on bikes. It was about one in the afternoon in Marksville when we rolled up to the window at Daiquiri Island and didn’t even get a reaction from our server.
The drink menu was nailed to the wall by the window with concoctions called “Stanky Leg,” “Purple Haze,” and “Whoop Ass,” among others we’re too embarrassed to type)!
There was no explanation as to what they might be made of, so we went with something we had heard of – a Mudslide. When asked what size, we opted to split a small – which was 20oz! Delicious and VERY potant. An adult chocolate milkshake, if you will. (click here to find out more on Mardi Gras outside of New Orleans)
Later in the day, we found another interesting establishment, The Watering Hole. Instead of a drive-up window, we actually drove through the building.
The walls were lined with refrigerator cases filled with cold beer, wine and the like.
And there were daiquiris, as well. Our favorite name was “Hillbilly Suicide.”
The drink we had split earlier was MORE than enough, so we opted for a pound of crawfish scooped up out of a cooler – the biggest little mudbugs we’d ever seen. Delicious!
