The inevitable has finally happened with the Cleveland Cavaliers going against the Golden Sate Warriors in the 2017 NBA Finals. Whether you are hedging your bets on the the reigning champs, the Cleveland Cavaliers, or you are a die hard Golden State fan, one thing you have in common is that you are going to need a few stiff drinks to get through what is sure to be a nail biting, buzzer beating, showdown between the two. To help you through the next week or two I am sharing a few cocktail and mocktail (for those like me who can’t indulge) recipes that are NBA Finals themed and they will not disappoint!
The NBA playoffs are heating up! We are in the first round and already there have been heart-breaks, surprise finishes, and fines issued for squabbles with fans. For today’s NBA playoffs inspired cocktail I wanted to offer up something that included a few of my favorite cocktail elements, rum + pineapple= slam dunk in the Sideline Socialite playbook. Check out this super easy recipe, and my nod to the Rockets “the tropical blastoff”!
Now that football season is officially over some of you may not have realized that basketball season has be happening for quite some time now (since September). I have been made aware of this fact because my husband Cameron is a huge Houston Rockets fan and has not missed a game in about 3 years. Although I have been out of the loop with basketball for the past few years, if I had to choose a sport to actually sit down and watch with my husband, basketball would be it. Here are 4 reasons why you too should embrace basketball if your man is into it.
This time of year for a sports lover is kind of intense, even more so if you are involved with a sports lover. Not only do you have football games to contend with but now you have basketball games coming in hot too. I thought it was a fitting time to introduce another cocktail recipe in honor of this overlapping period because you might need it if your man is going back and forth from the NFL to the NBA throughout the week!
Ooooo weeeeee! What a week it’s been. Tensions are SUPER high in our country but we have to realize that life will and does go on. While we have all been glued to the TV looking at politics and ranting (or scrolling through rants) on social media I’d like to clue you in on a few sportsy things that have happened. I think we can all use a little light-hearted relief, wouldn’t you say? Here are a few things that happened somewhere between the last few debates and election day that your sports lover might have noticed, but may have escaped you.
