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 Mistletoe

Christmas is quickly approaching and this week we are happy to share with you an excellent Christmas cocktail.  Whether you are toasting on this Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, it is the perfect cocktail to top off your holiday celebrations.

This cocktail is quick and easy to make. There is no need for fussy ingredients.  It is light and a bit tart so it pairs nicely with a Christmas ham or delicious holiday sweets.

To make this delicious, festive cocktail you need your favorite gin, lemon juice, cranberry simple syrup and an egg white. There is a little bit of prep with creating your own cranberry simple syrup. It’s not very time consuming, but you will want this prepped before guests arrive.

We’ve made simple syrups in other recipes before, like in the Mojito and The Savannah Special.  Just follow the recipe or take a look back at our other posts.

Garnish this cocktail with some frozen cranberries and a sprig of rosemary and you have a holiday winner!

If you are viewing this post via email, visit us at www.theblindpig.blog for a complete recipe for The Mistletoe.

We have one more post that we are going to send your way this week, and then we are taking some time off to enjoy life with the piglets.  Look for a post Wednesday or Thursday for one more holiday recipe.  We are going to be busy this week completing shopping, baking and wrapping.  What are your plans for the countdown to Christmas?
