The theme of this year's Mardi Gras is, as always, gluttony. And what's more hedonistic than turning a sugary cake into a bourbon-spiked milkshake? Exactly two weeks ahead of New Orleans' biggest holiday, POPSUGAR created a king cake milkshake. This thing comes complete with sprinkles in NOLA colors and even a plastic baby bobbing in the sea of booze. You owe it to yourself to make at least one by the 17th, hopefully with one of these choice bourbons. Throw on your beads and get blending.
