Elevate Your Tailgate Cocktails

Oct 12, 2015 05:45AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Food



(Family Features) With football season in full swing, throwing a winning tailgating party is a must. Fire up the grill and mix up some great cocktails to keep your party going strong from kickoff to the final horn.

This year, take your game to new heights by putting an unexpected twist on traditional tailgate eats and drinks. Ditch the wilted stalk of celery and soggy slice of bacon, and bolster your Bloody Mary with any variety of sausage – a game-changing play sure to turn heads, experiment with different flavor in your garnish and earn the respect of your comrades.

A Bloody Mary is more than just a crave-worthy cocktail. It’s a spectacle, a cultural phenomenon and an opportunity to make a statement at your next tailgate party.

No matter which team you’re rooting for this football season, you can customize your Bloody Mary with a smoked cooked Johnsonville sausage and other garnishes. For added fun, offer a complete Bloody Mary bar to let guests call their own audible. Include options such as:

  • Johnsonville Summer Sausage
  • Johnsonville Smoked-Cooked Andouille Sausage
  • Plain or flavored salt for glass rims
  • A variety of hot sauces
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Horseradish
  • Pepper
  • Pickled green beans or okra
  • Pickles
  • Wedges of lemon and lime
  • Pearl onions
  • Olives stuffed with pimento or blue cheese
  • Cheese cubes
