FROM THE KITCHEN OF BUTTERMILK LIPSTICK 
{testing notes}

Lemonade Moonshine game day cocktail Alabama Crimson Tide Shine RebeccaGordon ButtermilkLipstick tailgate food drink ideasHow To Pull Off A Lemonade Cocktail Bar
we’ve got spirit yes we do… here’s why

The 411

Tailgating At Home

Extra large beverage jars with spouts are the way to go
to contain the Vanilla Bean-Strawberry Lemonade or the Vanilla Bean 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.

A mason jar contains the Orange & Blueberry “Mash”.

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.
Ice down the Orange & Blueberry “Mash”.
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.

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.

The Fan Fare

To really have a ball,
experiment with a variety of moonshine concoctions available.
Create your own signature drink to elevate the fun.

etc

The Lemons 

Look for bright color & citrus that gives easily
when gently squeezed in your hand.

It will take approximately 8 lemons to prepare the recipe.
About 2 lbs of lemons will yield enough for the lemonade & the garnishes.
Expect 2 to 3 Tbsp of juice from each lemon.

The Tool

A hand-operated lemon juicing tool worked very well.
Expect it to take about 8 minutes to slice the fruit in half & press the juice.
