So I’m sure you guys already know, but the Super Bowl is this weekend. I‘m not any sort of official authority on it or anything and let’s be honest, I had to use Google to see who is playing. I do however, enjoy Super Bowl parties. They are the jam!
Who doesn’t love a party this is centered around snack foods and adult beverages – AND you have a few hours to chat away with some of your lady friends (unless of course they are into watching the game..)?? That’s a good Sunday to me
You guys know my fabulous blogging friend Ari, right? Well she and I teamed up to make a little cooking video for you guys and it’s all about the Super Bowl. Ari and I have been working away at a series of short cooking videos where I make the drinks and she makes the food – so creatively titled Drink & Dish. All those long runs we did together were productive in more than one way – this idea was hashed out over many miles (and hours) of running. Who knew it was possible to multitask while running?
This was our first go round at this so it was a tiny bit rocky…I accidentally filmed the whole thing in some strange video format that was impossible to get onto our computers and was even worse to look at. The quality is better in the next one – I promise! I also accidentally unplugged our microphones right before I started to film too which is why the sound is a little whacky. Apparently I am not the worlds best video tech haha. And please forgive my awkwardness of not looking at the camera…I’m working on it.
In the video Ari will show us how to make a lightened up version of the ever-popular buffalo chicken dip. The recipe is up on her blog – go check it out! And I make a beer cocktail full of citrusy flavors (recipe in the post below).
This drink is perfect for all of you who want something a little more than a beer at your Super Bowl party. Blue Moon is one of my favorite beers and I absolutely love it when I order one and it comes with an orange slice. I figured why not spice up the usual Blue Moon with a little fresh orange juice and citrus vodka – the end result was quite fabulous. More flavor than a typical beer but still tastes light and refreshing.
If you don’t like Blue Moon or don’t have any on hand, any wheat beer or hefeweizen will work as well. And any orange or citrus flavored vodka will do the trick here as well.
- 1(12 oz) bottle of wheat beer, such as Blue Moon
- 1 shot (1.5 oz) citrus flavored vodka
- ½ shot (0.75 oz) Grand Marnier or orange liqueur
- ¼ cup Orange juice
- Orange slice for garnish (optional)
Slowly pour beer into a chilled glass. Add citrus vodka, Grand Marnier and orange juice to the glass of beer. Stir gently to combine and garnish with an orange slice.
