Need a game plan for hosting a tailgate or viewing party? From spirit-inspired game day recipes to celebratory drinks and crowd-pleasing party decorations, we’ve got you covered.
Winning Game Day Recipes
Game day food is the real MVP of the party. When planning the menu, it’s all about finger foods, dips and all-time fan favorites (think chicken wings). Try something delicious and easy that everyone will want to get their hands on, like our Slow-cooked BBQ Turkey Sliders or Oven-baked Chili Cheese Dogs. And what’s game day without Classic Beer Cheese Dip? If you’re looking for something a little lighter, try our Veggie Jars with Basil Parmesan Yogurt Dip or our Everything Bagel Seasoned Yogurt Dip served with fresh vegetables or bagel crisps. Bring extra spirit to the table by turning food you’re already making into your own Snack Stadium. And don’t forget the sweets. Our Game Day Cake Pops will have guests hoping for overtime.
Party Drinks that Score Big
Whether you’re homegating or tailgating, root for your team with refreshing game day beverages. A party favorite to sip on is our Agave-thyme Whiskey Sour. It’s a fresh take on a classic cocktail. Use quality whiskey and a hint of bright, fresh lemon juice to get everyone in the stands cheering. You can keep fans on the edge of their seat and kick things up a notch with Jalapeño Margaritas with Chili Pepper Salt or a Spiced Watermelon Cocktail. For celebratory drinks without the alcohol, check out our mocktail recipes. And don’t forget to fill your coolers with ice-cold soda, seltzer, beer and kid- friendly drinks for the whole crew.
Championship Party Decorations
A tailgate or watch party needs flair, and your team’s colors are the foundation of the décor. Though hanging banners and team balloons will bring extra fun to the festivities, you can just as easily show your support with colorful tablecloths, napkins and disposable tableware – plus, single-use dishes keep cleanup simple.
