Can you smell the pig in the air? I mean, both the pig skin that will take over some of our lives for the next few weeks, and the smell of the Hogs gearing up for a (hopefully!) great season. Football fan or not, one thing we can all agree to be fans about is tailgating. Just when we begin to miss the beauty of the summer BBQ, we usher in the infinite fall fun that is tailgating.
Well, because I always have your back, it's time to introduce the perfect tailgating cocktail: the Sweet Sooiee. Now, while this was made for Razorback fans, it could just as easily be used for any football team that embraces that powerful red. This drink combines some of my favorite southern loves, bourbon and lemonade, while the cherry makes it our favorite red.
1/2 Package of Crystal Light Lemonade
1 cup of Water
1 oz of Bourbon
1 tsp of Grenadine
Guys, I love how simple it is to make this cocktail. First, you will create the lemonade with the water and the half package of Crystal Light. What's awesome about this is rather than using mixers with a lot of calories, you are using something with just a few.
After creating your lemonade, then pour in the grenadine and bourbon. I really love supporting our local distillery, Rock Town Distillery, to give it that extra special Arkansas twist, but anything will work! Lastly, garnish with cherries and enjoy!
Big thank to Tres Lifestyle for including this cocktail in this quarter's issue. It was a huge honor to see it published! You can check out their magazine here.
As always, we luvv to see you making our creations. I'd love to see you ladies in your best tailgating outfit rocking the Sweet Sooiee. If you end up making it, tag Hello Luvvy's instagram so we can see how great it looks in your hand!
Happy Eats (and Go Hogs!) My Sweets
