Plan a Women Owned Tailgate
Football is back! Sports fan or not, tailgating and enjoying time with friends and delicious food is something everyone can get behind.
Grab your favorite jersey and some items from this Women Owned guide to plan a tailgate for yourself, family or friends, while supporting women entrepreneurs.
Things You’ll Need:
Whether you’re tailgating from your home in front of the TV or in the parking lot before the game, cold beverages are a must. Many sodas are packed with sugar, so substitute sparkling water like Tickle Water and Open Water to get the fizz without the sugars. Milo’s iced tea and lemonade are also refreshing to drink on their own or you can combine them to make a pitcher of Arnold Palmers.
Create some batch cocktails or mocktails to bring along with these Summer Women Owned Cocktail Recipes. Wine can be a great addition to beer for watch parties. Check out our guide to Women Owned wines (and perfect snack parings) here.
Food is a central part of any tailgate or watch party. Go traditional and fire up the grill to make these Rainbow Veggie Kabobs and Bloody Mary Hot Wings. Find more staple football recipes including Pizza, Cookies, and Nachos in our favorite Women Owned Super Bowl Recipes Roundup and even more recipes in our new Recipes section.
Paper Towels, Straws and Napkins
Messes are almost guaranteed at a tailgate, whether a its an errant football or a spilled drink, but with TreeFree Paper Products napkins, paper towels and tissues on-hand, cleanup will be easy. Don’t forget to bring some bamboo paper straws for all those beverages too.
