Apple Pie Spiked Milkshake

Is there anything that screams fall more than apple pie? This spiked apple pie milkshake is a crowd favorite and blends perfectly with our brown sugar and cinnamon southern cream. When creating this cocktail for a crowd, have a toppings bar where guests can garnish their own milkshake. 

Apple Pie Spiked Milkshake

Ingredients:

3-4 Scoops Vanilla Ice Cream

Slice of Apple Pie

1/4 Cup Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in Brown Sugar and Cinnamon 

Whipped Cream, Apple Pie, Apple Slices, Cinnamon Sticks (Optional, for garnish) 

Directions:

To make this delicious milkshake, combine vanilla ice cream, apple pie, and Jackson Morgan in a blender. Blend until milkshake consistency. You may need to add more ice cream for a thicker consistency. Top with whipped cream, apple pie crumbles, cinnamon sticks, apple slices, or your favorite toppings. Serve immediately.

End of Summer Party Favors

For our last post about our end of summer pool party, I am sharing details on our party favors. 

I put a lot of thought into our party favors and since people sometimes forget towels, I settled on one of our signature Jackson Morgan beach towels. They come in an array of colors and guests can use one if they need it and take one home too. 

I love these towels and have had so many compliments on them at the pool and beach. Be sure to snag one before we retire them from our company store for the year. They will not be back until next summer.

End of Summer Pool Party Cocktails

We shared details of our end of summer pool party last week, this week I spilling all the details on our cocktails that we served. You may be surprised at how easy these cocktails are to make! 

I am a huge craft cocktail lover, but sometimes they can be overly complicated and guests might feel intimidated. To keep things simple for my end of summer pool party, I served Jackson Morgan whipped orange and banana pudding plain with the option of adding ice. There were no complaints and no one had to play bartender all afternoon, that is a win win in my book. 

If you want to fancy it up, it would be fun to add ice cream and pour Jackson Morgan over it for a cool treat. In the past, we have created milkshake and sundae bars with every kind of topping and ice cream you could imagine. Check out our old posts for inspiration. 

What is your favorite poolside cocktail?

End of Summer Pool Party Bar Cart

Earlier this week, I shared our end of summer pool party. Today, I am sharing details on our bar cart from that soirée. 

It is no secret I love a bar cart, my collection has gotten a little out of control. My all time favorite bar cart is the Society Social Madison Mixer. I love it because of its versatility, it goes with any theme or holiday especially during the summer. The faux bamboo was beyond perfect for a poolside party, I just rolled it outside for guests to use. Bar carts are great for cocktails, but I love to use them to serve snacks, appetizers, and desserts too. 

Under the umbrella shade to keep drinks and desserts cool, my bar cart was the perfect station for treats. On the top, I had a lemon water dispenser, bamboo forks, plates, napkins, paper straws, and of course our banana pudding cream. I lined the top with palm leaf placemats in case of any spills. Pink cupcakes, mixers, and our whipped orange creams lined the bottom. I also used a fresh pineapple and calligraphy cocktail sign for decoration. 

I used gold lanterns and pink flamingo yard ornaments to decorate on the side of the bar cart. When I host parties, I love to add something unexpected and these pink flamingos were a fun addition. I hate using glass for outdoor gatherings, my Nora Fleming melamine platter and Sugar and Cloth pink plastic coupe glasses are a few of my favorites for summer parties. 

 

 

 

End of Summer Pool Party

With the season about to change, we are enjoying one last summer pool party before the fall weather sets in. There is something so easy about a pool party, no need for a special menu just a few snacks and of course cocktails. It is the perfect way to celebrate the end of summer. 

Theme

What is a summer party without bright pops of color and pink flamingos? Since flamingos are all the rage right now, it was easy to find details that went with our theme. Flamingo pool floats, yard ornaments, and candles were the perfect addition to this party. I found a vintage yellow cooler and knew it would look cute and keep drinks cool. The fringe umbrellas and woven drink dispenser added a fun texture to the party. 

Decor

Pool floats make the best decor for poolside parties. We used the flamingo floats in two different colors and a pineapple float to jazz up the pool area. Our Jackson Morgan beach towels doubled as decor and party favors. Colorful pillows added a nice pop of color to the loungers. I rolled my bar cart outside to serve drinks and sweets. My favorite monogrammed Lettermade napkins and bamboo flatware dressed up the cart. Abigail T. Calligraphy made the cutest sign for our cocktails. 

The Menu

For this party, I kept the menu simple with just pink cupcakes and macarons. We served Jackson Morgan in whipped orange and banana pudding for cocktails. Since it is so hot in Tennessee during the summer, lemon water in a drink dispenser is a must. I love the idea of pairing this party with a backyard bbq and serving your favorite grilled items in the evening. 

What is your favorite way to celebrate the end of summer?
