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 we know the two teams competing for the whole enchilada I feel like I can really get into the spirit of the Big Game. Many of you know that I have been preparing for this game by offering up some fantastic recipes and cocktails to serve at your watch party. While some of these recipes are delicious, ooey gooey, and down right cute, they may leave out some of your more health conscience guest who my be holding tight to their New Year’s resolution diets! With today’s recipe I decided to switch to something a bit lighter without sacrificing flavor and sticking to the Big Game theme.
Maybe I was a little inspired after my recent trip to Israel. Everywhere you go there are olives. We went by numerous olive presses, olives were a part of every meal, we literally visited a place called the “Mount of Olives”. So I think it’s high time that I incorporated them into the perfect bite-sized game day appetizers to serve during the big game.
Initially attracted to the Moscow Mule because I totally dig the look of copper mugs, I finally tried one and found them to be delicious! The Blue 42 Moscow Mule is Texas twist on a classic. The winner is…winner of the Jake Owen Tickets announced in the post plus and a free download Super Bowl recipe guide in today’s post.
Now that the holidays are over we can all go back to the next big thing on the calendar for 2017 and that is the Super Bowl. Whether you are a football fan or not (and let’s face it, you probably aren’t) there is just something about “The Big Game” that gets everyone amped up. Part of my Super Bowl watch party spread will be these chicken nugget and waffle cupcakes that are a fun take on chicken and waffles. My daughter LOVES these and they are perfect for a Super Bowl watch party, tailgate, or brunch!
