It’s that time of year again Super Bowl XLIX, here are some helpful tips to make your party the talk of the town.
Decor – Use team colors to decorate your house. Get a black and red table-cloth for your food and a red and blue one for napkins and plates (or vice versa). – Decorate the house with plastic footballs and fun black, gray, and red confetti.
Food – Almost as important as the game itself, Is the food that is served at your party! My personal favorite is to make a big batch of chili and then have everyone you invite bring their favorite super bowl snack, dessert, or dish. Here are some great Fit Chic Super Bowl recipes that are delicious, festive, and will have the crowd cheering for you!
Dessert – This is where the fun and creative juices can start flowing. You can make Blue and Red sugar Cookies, Helmet Fruit Bowl, Football Strawberries, and Football Truffles.
Cocktails – The most vital part of the whole party … No matter what team you are rooting for here are two drinks that appeal to any Atlanta Falcon or Patriot Fan.
Falcon Sweet Tea
6 cups water
4 or 5 black tea bags
1/4 cup of raw honey
1/4 to 1/2 cup bourbon (depending on how strong you want your cocktail)
4 to 6 sliced orange rounds
6 sprigs fresh mint
lots of ice
Bring water to a boil. Turn off water and add black tea bags. Steep tea for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags, place the tea in a large pitcher and let rest in the refrigerator until cold.
Place honey, bourbon, orange slices and fresh mint in a medium bowl. Use the back of a spoon, begin to muddle the ingredients. The oranges will release some juice, the mint will become fragrant, and the bourbon will tickle your nose. It’ll smell delicious. Once the mixture is pressed together, and the flavors are extracted, add the mixture to the pitcher of tea. Stir well.
2 oz. unfiltered natural cranberry juice
2 oz. vodka
2 oz. blue curaçao
5 oz.Lime Soda Water
Pomegranate arils for garnish (Optional)
Pour Cranberry juice into a glass filled with ice. Then add vodka and blue curaçao to shaker and shake up. Slowly pour the blue mixture over the red and watch how cool it is as it floats. Top off with soda water and pomegranate arils if desired.
Hope you all have a very enjoyable Super Bowl Weekend!
