Usually, when I host a get-together, I struggle and spend a majority of my time trying to figure out what cocktails to serve on the menu. What type of liquor to serve, what pairs well with the meal, the type of event I’m hosting, and what variety of options I should have available. That’s a lot to wrap your head around and it can be a bit overwhelming sometimes…right?! One of my go-to’s is this super easy coffee shooter recipe!
Did you catch these cute little guys making an appearance in yesterday’s cocktail post?
They kinda steal the show, right?
I picked up the adorable foam fingers from the Spritz party line at Target. They were meant to be finger puppets, but I had a better idea.
They are beyond SIMPLE to put together and took all of 5 seconds.
All you need:
- Foam finger puppets
- Wooden candy sticks (I picked mine up here).
- Hot Glue
- A cocktail
The foam fingers come prepped with small little openings in the bottom.
Add some hot glue around the top of your wooden candy stick.
Stick the top of the wooden candy skewer into the bottom of the foam finger. (I pressed the edges of the finger together a bit to prevent the glue from hitting the edges).
Press the foam finger around the wooden skewer ball top to adhere well.
I told you…5 seconds. You only have to wait for your glue to heat up and then you’re done.
Super simple and oh, so adorable.
The big game is Sunday and I’m not sure about you, but I haven’t planned a single thing yet. I’m still recovering from the Raven’s loss.
One thing I do know…I’ll be serving these tangy Superbowl Michelada cocktails!
A bit of spice, a salty rim, and the cutest foam finger addition will make any football fan cheer. (More on those foam finger stir sticks tomorrow).
Here’s what you’ll need to whip up your own batch:
- Mexican Lager Beer (I used Dos Equis)
- Clamato Juice
- 3 splashes (or more, depending on spice) of hot sauce
- 2 splashes worcestershire sauce
- 2 splashes soy sauce
- Juice of one lime
- Lime segments for garnish
- Coarse salt for the rim of your glasses
1). Put your salt onto a flat plate. Using a lime, rub juice around the rim of your glass. Dip the wet glass into the salt to rim your glass.
2). Fill your glass about 1/3 full with the Clamato juice. Add the splashes of hot sauce, worcestershire sauce, and soy sauce. Add your fresh lime juice.
3). Fill the rest of your glass with ice cold beer.
4). Add ice, if needed, and garnish with lime wedge.
I really love this cocktail because it’s really easy and fast to throw together, which means I can enjoy the halftime show without wasting all of my time in the kitchen!
Check back tomorrow to see how simple it was to make those little stir sticks too!
