Feb 4, 2012 >> A Super Super Bowl Party: Debi Lilly Intercepts Great Party Ideas
The new, hot Superbowl cocktail in New York? Beer Shakes. And not just any old beer shake, but Burger Shack’s Klondike Beer Shake. Here’s the recipe:
BURGER SHACK’S KLONDIKE BEER SHAKE
Klondike Bars (1 box = 6 small shakes) // NY’s Brooklyn Beer (or any NY beer, or frankly any craft beer you like), 6 – 12 pack depending on guest count
Mix 4 unwrapped Klondike Bars in a blender with a 1 bottle NY craft beer (I like Brooklyn Beer—maybe it is because I LOVE their shops and eats and flea market). You can adjust the beer ratio for a thicker or thinner beer shake. Pour into glasses to serve, and top with a Klondike Bar, cut into quarters, right ontop as a garnish.
My no-fuss trick? Set glasses on a baking sheet, and place entire sheet in freezer, to keep cold until party. Voila! No bartending required when friends arrive.
SUPER BOWL STRAWS
Dress up those simple straws with our custom designed Superbowl flags. Download away with these links:
NY GIANTS PENANT FLAGS // NY GIANTS SQUARE FLAGS // PATRIOTS PENANT FLAGS // PATRIOTS SQUARE FLAGS
Just print, cut and done. Wrap ’em on the straws, wrap ’em on a toothpick, wear them as earrings—just use them!
Another hot trend this season? The Butch Blender Bar. Whip up some Beer-garitas with my favorite margarita recipe EVER. This is a spin off of my friend Kristin Pillsbury’s delicious recipe. I fell in love with them at Mom’s n’ Margaritas, one of my favorite parties of the year that she and other school moms throw each year, all in the name of Public School fundraising. Ahhh…the things we do in the name of our children’s education.
She uses Club Soda, I love me some ginger, so swapped the soda for Ginger Ale. I can promise, either way, they are perfection.
(And side note: We had the best day EVER a few years ago, onset for a party/styling job, where my charge was whipping up frozen THESE margaritas with this exact tequila at The Oprah Winfrey Show for the beautiful Favorite Things for Summer while Robin Thicke rocked it out onstage).
1 can frozen Limeade (makes 1 pitcher) // 1 bottle light beer // 1 bottle Ginger Ale // 1 bottle Tequila // 1 lime, sliced into flat rounds, with a slit for side of glass for garnish // Ice
In a Ninja Kitchen System Blender, pour frozen Limeade. Using now empty Limeade can, fill with beer. Add to blender. Next, fill can with Ginger Ale. Add to blender. Last, fill with Tequila. Add to blender. Add in ice, blend until frothy. Serve in glasses, with sliced lime wedge garnish floating ontop. Easy!
