She Knit a Hand Grenade, French Quarter Style!

She Knit a Hand Grenade, French Quarter Style!

I’m not drunk, you’re drunk!

If you’ve ever hung out on Bourbon Street in New Orleans, you’ve probably encountered the famous “hand grenade” cocktail. I lived in Baton Rouge for a spell in my 20s and was lucky to visit New Orleans quite often (had my share of hand grenades too). I still go back from time to time to visit my friend Brandi, but no more hand grenades for me, except maybe for this fabulous knitted one by Megan of PottsPurls.
