A Ladies Guide to Game Day -...

Skinnygirl® Cocktails knows sports AREN’T just a guy thing anymore, so we’re here to rewrite the rules on how to be a lady and a sports fan. In the spirit of football season, we’re helping you throw the perfect pigskin party. Whether you make it a girlfriends-only game day or decide to include the guys, too, Skinnygirl® Cocktails has a few fundamentals to throwing an athletic affair that will have everybody cheering!

To kickoff your party right, you’ll need a crowd-pleasing presentation. No need to get gaudy with streamers, signs, or foam fingers, keep your room classically simple with hints of your favorite teams’ colors dispersed in some key places – napkins, coasters, throw-pillows, welcome mat, etc. Instead of a tablecloth, use a plaid throw or quilt that features your team’s colors.

Craft a chalkboard menu to get your fellow fans excited about the tasty treats you have on the roster. If you really want to impress the crowd combine football with fall-fun by carving a football helmet out of a pumpkin and using it as a centerpiece!

Once you’ve strategized your set-up, it’s time to satisfy your thirsty fans. Swap out the plastic cooler for a chic galvanized metal bucket to chill and serve drinks. That means you’ll need to stock up on everyone’s favorite self-serve beverage – Skinnygirl® Cocktails!

Chill a few bottles of ready-to-serve Skinnygirl® Sangria and Skinnygirl® White Cranberry Cosmo for guests to sip throughout the game, and whip up a few festive football-themed cocktails beforehand so you won’t have to take a time-out from the game.
