☆ LIBATIONS ☆
What are MY game day cocktail creations for the BIG GAME this year???
☆ "The Flying Eagle"
☆ "The Mighty Chief
☆ "The Blind Ref
THE FLYING EAGLE:
1 oz Whiskey (your choice)
1 oz sweet & sour mix
1/2 oz Amaretto
1 oz pineapple juice
1/2 oz Blue Caraco
Shake all ingredients. Pour over ice.
*Garnish with lime slice and a blueberry
THE MIGHTY CHIEF:
1 oz Red Stag Bourbon
1/2 oz Grenadine
1 oz Cranberry juice
1 oz Orange juice
1/2 oz Triple Sec
Shake all ingredients together. Pour over ice. *Garnish with orange slice and cherries
THE BLIND REF:
2 oz Basil Haydens over ice
* squeeze of an orange wedge
Make life easy on yourself. Keep it simple, fast and inexpensive. For game day parties I sometimes head to our local Dollar store for color coordinated plates, napkins, various platters, bowls, etc.
*PRO TIP: I typically will split my dining/serving table in half... on one side of the table I feature the "food" items and color coordinate with team "A" colors... and the other half of the table I feature desserts/snacks and color coordinate with team "B" colors. What's in the shopping cart?
Table top sprig (usually what they tie balloons to)
Small dessert napkins
Table top sprig (what they usually tie ballons too)
That's it! You need all of those things already, why not make it colorful?
Oh yeah! I almost forgot... don't forget the party beads!
