Introducing the KING CAKE OLD FASHIONED: Sazerac Rye + Housmade Cinnamon Brown Sugar Syrup + Housemade Coffee Cocoa Bitters…. and yes there is a baby in your drink.
What is a King Cake, the inspiration behind this sensational drink and why is there a baby in there? The King Cake is a decadent french dessert created in honor of the three wise kings whom visited baby Jesus after his birth. In the “Mardi Gras Food Glossary” on the Southern Food & Beverage Museum’s website, “King Cake” is defined, in part, this way: “A simple cinnamon flavored brioche dough is the usual base, which is then covered in purple, green, and gold sugar. It used to be hard to find anything else, but flavors and styles of king cake have exploded in recent years. Cream cheese, coconut, boudin, and pralines are common fillings now, with hundreds of other flavors available at different shops.”
A small baby, symbolizing the baby Jesus, is traditionally hidden inside each King Cake. Today, the baby symbolizes luck and prosperity to whomever finds it in his/her slice of cake. That person is also responsible for purchasing next year’s cake, or for throwing the next Mardi Gras party. In some traditions, just like at the Bounty, the finder of the baby is designated “king” or “queen” for the evening. Sip on one and I’m sure you’ll be feeling like royalty as you watch the parade.
