Celebrate Football Season with these Awesome Tailgating Recipes!


It’s that wonderful time of the year, folks! Football season is back in full force and everyone knows one of the best ways to spend your weekend is in a stadium parking lot tailgating. According to a recent study, 80 percent of the U.S. population (or 240 million people) tailgates at least once a year. Whether you consider yourself a master tailgater or need to refine your tailgating skills, we wanted to help out your tailgate game with some mouth-watering whiskey-infused food recipes, and some delicious cocktail recipes for you to whip up for family and friends!

What is the one thing you need to make your tailgate legendary? Whiskey. And whether the whiskey comes in food or cocktail form, it is sure to be an instant crowd pleaser. Below are a couple of Crown Royal and George Dickel food and drink recipes you and your tailgate crew can enjoy before, during, or after the big game!

-2 teaspoons crushed garlic, Gourmet Garden®

-4 pounds chicken wing drumettes

-3 scallions (green onions), finely chopped (optional)
