Here are some ways to score a touchdown with your next tailgate party:
This means more than setting out sticks of celery. Give the table a Southern spin with fun condiments like pickled okra, shrimp, bleu cheese stuffed olives and, of course, bacon.
Offer your guests vodka that goes outside the mainstream. With the rise of regional high-end craft vodkas your options are wide ranging. At the very least be sure it’s not in a plastic bottle, you’re not in College anymore.
OK, maybe you’re not making actual vodka, but you can make your own infused-vodkas (think cucumber, jalapeno, bacon) at home before the party starts. Think of how impressed your guests will be!
Your guests need more than just drinks at the tailgate party so create a food menu that complements your Bloody Mary bar. Instead of worrying about a wide selection of food items, pick five or six fan favorites and make sure you have plenty to go around.
You’ve invested the time to find a great vodka (or bourbon) and you’ve set up a fabulous food spread and a selection of condiments on the Bloody Mary bar – now’s not the time to toss any old bottle of Bloody Mary mix on the table.
Another football-filled weekend is just around the corner so it’s not too late to upgrade your tailgate and find the Bloody Mary mix that will have your friends clamoring for more.
