Mix up your tailgate with this Bloody Mary bar, brought to you by Evite in partnership with Hefty® Ultimate™ Easy Grip® Cups.
Carry Bloody Mary ingredients to the tailgate in wooden crates, then set them out at the party as part of your display. Pour tomato juice in a portable drink dispenser and put a bottle of vodka next to it on ice; that way, some can spike their drinks while others enjoy a virgin version. Let everyone create their own perfect concoction from a selection of mix-ins, including salt, pepper, hot sauce, Worstershire sauce and horseradish. Stack plenty of plastic cups to the side so fellow football fans can serve themselves (we used Hefty® Ultimate™ Easy Grip® Cups because they resist cracking).
Display garnishes (such as celery sticks, parsley, lime wedges, lemon wedges, olives, pickles and bacon) in disposable cups like the Hefty® Ultimate™ Easy Grip® Cups shown here. Use a black marker to write the names of ingredients beside each cup on kraft paper covering the table.
Now the fun begins: Invite friends to build their own Bloody Mary by mixing and matching mix-ins. The options are endless.
