1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp black pepper

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Combine the brown sugar, the salt, the chili powder, the thyme, the garlic powder, the onion powder, the black pepper & the red pepper in a small bowl. Squeeze the lemon over the pork tenderloins. Rub the spice mixture over the pork.

Stir together the sugar & the water in a 2-quart sauce pan. Bring the mixture to a boil over High heat, stirring occasionally. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat. Add the vanilla bean & the seeds to the warm sugar syrup. Let stand for 10 minutes. Remove the pod & pour the mixture through a fine wire sieve. Refrigerate until cold. Use as directed.

How To Pull Off A Lemonade Cocktail Bar

Custom cocktails are a lovely way to welcome guests into your home on game day. 
Follow my tips on how to pull it off.

rebecca gordon buttermilk lipstick Southern Recipes & How To's Easy Tailgate Recipes RebeccaGordon ButtermilkLipstickThe Logistics 

No. 1

Tailgating At Home

Extra large beverage jars with spouts are the way to go to contain the Vanilla Bean-Strawberry Lemonade. Increase the recipe 2 or 3 times in order to serve an even bigger crowd. 

Pour the Vanilla Bean Syrup into a glass bottle with a clamp. Oil & vinegar bottles also work well as they already have a handy pour spout attached.

Fill a beverage tub with ice. Nestle the Vanilla Bean Syrup & the bottle of moonshine in the ice for extra cool cocktails. Add in smaller bottles of sparkling water to keep the fizz fresh. Have a smaller ice bucket with a metal scoop handy for fresh ice to go into the cocktails.

Organize mason jars on trays so guests can help themselves. Offer raspberries & lemons for the cocktails in small bowls.

No. 2

Tailgating On The Go

Premix the cocktail & transport in recycled milk containers. Add to your icy cooler & be on your way. Paper napkins & acrylic cups in team colors add a bit of school spirit. Pour into a pretty pitcher once you arrive to your tailgate tent for an easy presentation. Have a small cooler filled with fresh ice for guests to add to their glasses.

We’ve got spirit yes we do… here’s why.
Follow my tips & pull it off at your tailgating social.
