No Fuss Treats for a Super Super Bowl Party

Have you heard that we are kind of excited about the super bowl at The Blind Pig house?  Believe it or not, we are not going to have a huge party, because we want to be able to focus on the game (and commercials). We are only having a few peeps over.  Whether you are having a huge party or watching the game with just a small group, we thought we would highlight a few of our recipes that can be game day ready in a flash!

We are breaking this post into three categories: beverages, sweet stuff, and munchies.  To find what you are looking for you can scroll to the category you want or take your time and explore all of it.

Large Batch Drinks: For the big game you may not want to spend your whole time in the kitchen mixing drinks.  We get it!  That is when it is convenient to have a large batch ready to go.  A sangria is always a winning large batch recipe.  You can fix a day or hours ahead of your party. Our favorites are  Bianco Sangria and Carpano Antica Sangria.  If you have a punch bowl, you cannot go wrong with a delicious punch. Although Jingle Gin Punch was intended for the Christmas season, it is a winning cocktail year round.  You can always re-name it Victory Punch for the party.  Seagram’s Peach Punch is also easy and a crowd pleaser at the same time.  All you need is some Seagram’s vodka, sliced peaches, and lemonade.  Can’t find peaches in the grocery store this time of year?  Add any fresh fruit to give your punch a winning appearance.

Mix it Up:  If mixed cocktails are what your crowd is into and you don’t mind spending some time away from the game, here are some cocktails that will help you score points with your friends.

We introduced you to Arrowhead Punch in last week’s post.  This red beverage is what our friends are going to be served during the game.  Another great red beverage is The Love Triangle.  We originally created the Love Triangle for our first Valentine’s Day, but it is a winner anytime of year.

A good play that always works is a great Skinny Margarita!  Other margs that can be sipped on at kickoff are: Merry Margarita and Strawberry Basil Margarita.

Fernet and Coke is the drink of choice for Argentinians when they watch a big football (soccer) game.  Maybe it’s time that Americans are introduced to this great beverage while watching their favorite sport?

Sweet Stuff:  This is Rhonda’s favorite category.  Not only are these treats easy to make, but they are sooo delicious.  If you walk in to a Super Bowl party with one of these in your hand, you will gain a lot of fans.  The first one that moves our chains is Borghetti Brownie Caramel Delights, all you need is a brownie mix, some Rolos and some Caffe’ Borghetti Espresso Liqueur.  Dip these in chocolate and you are good to go!

Rhonda took our Easy Espresso Cake to work this week for a super bowl pig out.  Rename it Chiefs Kingdom Cake.  Decorate with some Chiefs flags and your crowd will be dancing like Travis Kelce. Two other easy treats are Salted Whiskey Caramel Corn and Twisted Missouri Mud Brownies.    You can not go wrong with some fondue at your party.  Make Caramel or Chocolate fondue with some sliced fresh fruit and cubes of sponge cake.  Field Goal!!

Munchies: If you want to serve some substantial munchies at your party, Cola and Whiskey Brisket is a good place to start. Serve with some Corralejo Lime Guac and Tequila Ceviche.  Yummo!

We hope you have a wonderful Super Bowl party.  May the Chiefs win and the commercials be entertaining. Let us know if you served one of our recipes at your party.  We would love to hear about it.

How did the Watermelon Wars work out in your household?  Our friends, Roger and LeeAnn, shared yet another great watermelon drink that they make.  They believe their drink may be the tie breaker.  What do you think?

This week we bring you another yummy drink made with one the season’s fresh fruits – PEACHES!  This drink is an easy refreshing drink to serve in large batches at a 4th of July BBQ or family reunion.

Seagram’s Peach Punch

The ingredients?  Easy. Tasty. Fresh!  You need Seagram’s Peach Vodka, lemonade, and fresh peaches.  That’s it!  Sooo easy.

The recipe?  Even easier. One part vodka.  One part lemonade. We like to use Minute Maid Lite because it keeps the calorie count low and doesn’t make the drink too sweet.  Add in sliced peaches for garnish and taste.

The taste?  Light and refreshing.  We had relatives who were healthy eaters and were glad to have a glass or two because of the low calorie count.

Don’t worry, you don’t need to tell your friends how easy it was to make.  The ease of this drink is why it is so perfect for a BBQ, you don’t have time to fuss over hand making a complicated drink for your guests.

Super tip!  This drink gets better with time.  What we mean is that it gets even better if you make it well ahead of your guests arriving.  After just an hour of making the drink, it took on a nice pink color of the peaches, and tasted even yummier!

Let us know if you serve it at your next BBQ or picnic.  We love to hear from our readers.  If you haven’t clicked on the “Follow Button” in the lower right corner of your screen, make sure to do it today.  Remember to look for us on Pinterest, as well.

Happy Fourth of July and Cheers,
