A Look Back on 2020: TBPB’s Top 10 Posts

We finally made it to the final day of 2020.  As has been stated, this has been quite an interesting year.  We won’t go into all of the gory details that you have lived through and reviewed on End of Year TV specials.  There was a peaked curiosity for creating your own cocktails at home during the quarantines and shutdowns, which created an uptick in traffic at our little corner of the internet. We noticed that you like special cocktails for holidays and celebrations. Duly noted. We will be sure to bring you more of those in 2021. Join us for our yearly glance down memory lane with a look back at The Blind Pig Blog’s top 10 posts.

10. Butterfinger Bourbon Pie

We could not agree more that this delicious dessert belongs on our top list.  If you are a fan of Butterfinger candy bars, like Craig, this will be your best friend.

9. Fernet Branca Collins

The breakout cocktail of the summer. You could often see us sipping on one of these near the pool, so we are glad that you liked it too!  It is so delicious and light. Not only is it a great summer cocktail, but it is so very yummy anytime of year.  Look for this to start showing up on bar and restaurant menus!

8. Strawberry Aperol Spritz

The Strawberry Aperol Spritz was another satisfying summer cocktail that we shared with you.  The berries added the perfect amount of summer to an already classic drink.

7. Truly Watermelon Lemonade

Poolside and lakeside lazy summer days will never be the same without this easy on the go drink.  Trulys are one of the best selling hard seltzers, and we added a little more summer to the experience.

6. Red, White and Blue Smash

Celebrating the Fourth of July was a little more festive with this yummy, summer beverage. The colors were perfect for our nation’s birthday.

5. Holiday Margarita

The next three top posts were from the month of December with our holiday cocktails.  We agree with you that we found some delightful holiday cocktails to pump up the merry.

4. The Mistletoe

Yes, we couldn’t agree more that this cocktail was a great way to toast on Christmas Eve.

3. Pomegranate Paloma

This cocktail has become The Blind Pig household’s cocktail of the season.  It is so easy to drink and has just enough festive flavor for anytime of the year.

2. Boozy Peanut Butter Blossoms

Our yummy cookies were a hit at our house and in our holiday treat boxes.  We hope you and your family enjoyed this holiday classic cookie with a twist.

1. Ten Holiday Cocktails

As we said earlier, it was evident that holiday cocktails were on your mind and in your searches this year. Our top post for the year was a list of our best holiday cocktails.

We hope you have a safe and wonderful NYE.  We will be staying in and watching the ball drop from the comfort of our home.  Make sure to tell others about our blog, we would love to see our following increase in 2021!

Boozy Peanut Butter Blossoms

‘Tis the season to do some holiday baking.  Blind Piglet #1 and Rhonda are getting started on our annual holiday goodie baskets today.  One of our favorite additions to our goodie basket is the delicious Peanut Butter Blossom Cookie.  This cookie is a wonderful combination of a peanut butter cookie with a Hershey’s Kiss plopped in the middle. This year we decided to add a little extra something to our Peanut Butter Blossoms and Blind Pig them up a bit.  Surprise!

Boozy Peanut Butter Blossoms are so easy to make and are always a fan favorite anytime of the year. We made ours with a basic family recipe that we got from Grandma Ruth.  To make these golden, buttery delights you will need flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, peanut butter, butter, egg, salt, baking soda, dark rum and chocolate kisses.  The addition of dark rum to this recipe increases the buttery richness of this cookie and pairs nicely with the peanut butter.

After mixing the dough, you will need to roll the dough into little balls.  Make sure to use the trick we shared with you in our post for Golden Mint Crinkles.  Spray your hands with some cooking spray before you roll the dough.  It makes for an easier time working the dough and creates a smoother texture that cooks evenly.

If you are viewing this post via email, visit us at www.theblindpig.blog for a full recipe for Boozy Peanut Blossoms.

Boozy Peanut Blossoms are the perfect addition to a holiday goodie basket or packaged as a stocking stuffer.  Because Boozy Peanut Blossoms taste yummier with a glass of milk, rumor has it that this is one of Santa’s favorites! A word of warning: These did not last long at our house.  Make sure you save some for Santa.

Is your mouth watering yet?  What are you waiting for? Start baking these delicious treats today!
