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!

The Blind Pig Berry Festival

Fresh vegetables and fruits are one of our favorite parts of summertime blog posts, which is why one our most used tag lines is: Easy, Tasty, Fresh!  As we looked back at past blog posts, we realized some definite patterns in our posts.  One pattern that overwhelmingly stood out to us was how many recipes that we had with berries.

Berries are the best — nature’s candy! Berries complement many cocktail and dessert recipes, so this week we are going to feature some of our past posts that included berries, such as, Strawberry Prosecco Cake or Tequila Strawberry Lime Ice Cream Pie, both of which we have made recently at The Blind Pig household.   Welcome to our Berry Festival by taking a look back with us.  Perhaps this is a good time to try out one of these fabulous recipes that you haven’t tried yet.

Strawberry Prosecco Cake

This dessert requires a little extra effort, but is certainly worth the effort.  The sponge cake is drenched in prosecco and frosted with a whipped cream frosting.  Delish!  It’s the ultimate summer dessert.

Tequila Strawberry Lime Ice Cream Pie

Tequila Strawberry Lime Ice Cream Pie is an easy dessert that will impress family and friends.  The salty pretzel crust pairs nicely with the sweetness of the strawberry ice cream and tequila.

Prosecco Summer Dessert

Prosecco Summer Dessert is such an easy summer dessert, you will wonder why you haven’t made it sooner.  Made with angel food cake, fresh berries, cool whip and vanilla pudding, it is ready for guests in no time.

Raspberry Margarita

The Raspberry Margarita is a great twist on a skinny margarita classic. It is perfect for summertime pool sipping.

Raspberry Mojito

Rum and Prosecco combine in this cocktail to give it a light refreshing taste.

Strawberry Aperol Spritz

A twist on a crowd favorite, the Strawberry Aperol Spritz is a delightful fresh summertime cocktail.

Strawberry Basil Margarita

The bright colors in this cocktail help to create a beautiful patriotic beverage for summer holidays.  The strawberry and basil flavors are a wonderful combination added to a wonderful skinny margarita base.

Blackberry Kiwi Mocktail

Red berries aren’t the only popular berries during the summer, blackberries make great cocktails too!  This mocktail is a huge hit on a hot summer day.

Savannah Special

We’ve featured this whiskey based drink with blackberry simple syrup in many posts before.  It is a summertime hit with a surprisingly light finish.

Grown Up Berry Lemonade

We couldn’t complete this post without suggesting an easy berry lemonade to fix for your picnics and lake trips.  A few simple basic ingredients and you are good to go with some spiked berry lemonade!!

All of these recipes are just the right amount of berry with a bit of summer mixed in. Enjoy them wherever your summer may take you.

We have many new followers joining us each week.  Welcome to The Blind Pig Blog.  We are happy you stopped by.  Let us know what you think. We would love to hear from you.
