Our Top Picks for 2021

One of our favorite practices at the end of a year is to take time to look back and reflect.  We are always focus on what is coming next, and we often forget to take a look at what we have accomplished.

Here are just a few personal examples of 2021 in the rearview mirror.  Our youngest piglet started his freshman year in college at Ole Miss.  Piglet #2 transferred to Texas Tech and is much happier with his new path.  Piglet #1 continued to adult in NYC and find her way in this big world.  Rhonda changed jobs and continued to work toward life and career goals.  Craig never stopped working hard and surpassing goals and challenges that were set before him.

Here at The Blind Pig Blog we have kept plugging away with new ideas and posts throughout the months.  We would love for you to travel back with us as we take a look at a few of our favorite posts.

1. Raspberry Red Velvet Cake Balls

We were not sure how these were going to turn out when we first came up with this idea.  The Raspberry Red Velvet Cake Balls surpassed our expectations and are definitely one of our all-time favorite happy accidents,

2. Carpano Botanic Spritz

The Carpano Botanic Spritz is one of Rhonda’s favorite cocktails.  She had been sipping on these for a couple of years, before we realized that we had not shared our secret with you.

3. Raspberry No-Churn Ice Cream

Born from our favorite no-churn ice cream base, this yummy ice cream hits the spot.  Add a little Chambord and it’s a crowd pleaser.

4. Blind Pig Mojitos

The tequila based mojitos recipe is one that we use often for entertaining and had been remiss in sharing with you.  This is one of our favorite large batch cocktail recipes for gatherings.

5. Strawberry Mint Spritz

This yummy and easy spritz is the perfect cocktail for kicking back and relaxing in summer mode.  The sweetness of strawberries and the zip of mint are a perfect combination.

6. Cinnaspresso

Perfect for multiple occasions, sip this creamy concoction for brunch or by the fire. It is sure to be a pleaser.

7. Game Day Beer Queso

Our creamy queso dip is ideal for watching your favorite sports on TV.  Maybe this will make it on your superbowl spread?

8. Borghetti Mudslide

Another great ice cream treat for adults, who says kids should have all of the fun?

9.  S’mores Ice Cream Cake

Who doesn’t love a good smore?  Add ice cream and cake to it and you have a definite winner.

10.  Espresso Martini

The 2021 Cocktail of the Year, espresso martinis are everywhere.  While some espresso martinis can be a little too rich, we are partial to our recipe.
