Girl’s Night – Tailgating Edition

This past weekend we decided to do something fun to celebrate the Brunette’s upcoming birthday.  We decide to attend a country concert and tailgate.  We brought food and drinks and braved the heat!!  Here are a drink and food idea for your next tailgating event!  We have recipes for Beermosas and a fun spicy hot dog.


You will need:

  • Orange Vodka
  • Beer
  • Orange Juice

In a solo cup (because that is the only way to do it!!), pour half a beer.  I used a cold Bud Light.  Then mix in about a shot and a half of orange vodka.  I have seen some recipes call for orange liquer, but that’s a little more expensive even for off brand.  Finish off the cup with orange juice.  Swirl around the cup a little and enjoy!

Spicy Hot Dog


You will need:

  • Hot Dogs
  • Hot Dog Buns
  • Bacon
  • Jalapenos
  • Tomatoes
  • Onion

First take a piece of bacon for each hot dog and wrap it around the hot dog.  You can get fancy and slip some slices of cheese between the hot dog and bacon.  When you put the hot dogs on the grill, be aware that they will need to be on there for a long time to get the bacon really crispy.  If you take it off too soon, the bacon will be a bit to chewy.  While cooking the dogs, prep the salsa.  Cut the tomatoes, jalapenos, and onions into small chunks.  For a pack of hot dogs, I used two Roma tomatoes, half an onion, and two jalapenos.  Once they bacon is nice and crispy, put in bun and top with chunky, spicy fresco salsa.

Enjoy the spicy hot dog and refreshing beermosa on a hot day with friends and/or family!!
