SEVEN// Adult Snow Cones
Growing up, we always would grab a slushy, milkshake, or fun drink before watching my brother play baseball. When spring comes around, a slushy or milkshake still sounds like a good idea. For our Spring brunch party, I wanted an adult version of everyone’s favorite orange ice cream slush.
Boozy Orange Cream Slushy
3 oz Orange Juice, Freeze Overnight
1-2 Scoops of Vanilla Ice Cream
1 1/2 oz Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in Whipped Orange
Whipped Cream, optional garnish
In a shallow freezer-safe dish, freeze orange juice overnight. Once the orange juice is frozen, use a fork to break up the frozen orange juice. Place 3 ounces of the frozen OJ into a glass. Next, top with a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream. Then top with Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in whipped orange. Be sure to combine in this order or your drink will curdle. Garnish with whipped cream. Enjoy immediately.

Party favors are an easy way to make any party feel more elevated. Jackson Morgan Southern Cream has a line of 375 mL bottles that are available in most markets. These bottles are larger than our mini bottles, but not quite as big as our standard 750 mL size. For our Spring brunch, these bottles in whipped orange were perfect for gifting as party favors.
I always keep gift tags on hand and love Dixie Design’s expansive collection. They also have invitations wrapping paper, stickers, and other stationary needs that match. The blue and white crest gift tags I used can be found here. I also linked a few of my favorites below. During the holidays, I usually stock up when stationery companies have sales. You may remember the red and pink gift tags I used for our Valentine’s Day soirée.
For the party favors for the Spring brunch party, I just tied orange paper straws to our Jackson Morgan Southern Cream 375 mL bottle with a gift tag. I used white pom pom wired ribbon, but you could use any ribbon you own. These party favors could not be easier to put together.
What are your go-to party favors to gift?

Another boozy recipe we served for our spring orange brunch party. I am generally not one to use boxed cake mix, but sometimes you run out of time and need something easy. The different flavors of cake layers create a fun stripe pattern when cutting into slices. The boozy icing is a fun addition to a brunch menu.
Orange Cake with Boozy Cream Cheese Icing
1 Box of Vanilla Cake Mix
1 Box of Orange Cake Mix
4 Ounces Cream Cheese, Softened
2 Tablespoons Butter, Softened
1 Teaspoon Orange Zest
1 Tablespoon Orange Juice
3 Cups Powdered Sugar
2 Tablespoons Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in whipped orange
2 Oranges with Leaves, Garnish
Make the boxed cake recipes according to the instructions on the box. Split each box into two cake pans, so you have four layers. After the cake layers have been baked and cooled on a cooling rack, wrap the layers in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 30 minutes to make icing the cake easier.
While the cake layers are in the freezer, make the frosting. Use a mixer with a flat beater attachment to beat the softened cream cheese and butter together. Once well combined add the orange zest, orange juice, and Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in whipped orange. Continue to mix with the mixer until creamy. Add the powdered sugar one cup at a time until icing consistency starts to form. You may need to add more sugar if your icing is not thick enough.
Once your icing is finished, remove your cake layers from the freezer and begin icing the cake. Assemble the cake by alternating cake layer flavors for a striped cake once cut into slices. Evenly split the icing amongst cake layers and then ice the outside of the cake. I highly recommend using a cake spatula and smoothing tool when icing cakes. Garnish with two small oranges with leaves on top of the cake. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.

Chocolate and orange are such delicious flavors when combined. For our spring brunch, I served boozy orange chocolate scones. You can also substitute cranberries for chocolate if you prefer a fruity scone. These decadent scones served with a glass of Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in whipped orange is a tasty happy hour treat.
Boozy Orange Chocolate Scones
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
3 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar, additional 1 Tablespoon for Sprinkling
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
5 Tablespoons Salted Butter, Frozen
3/4 Cup Chocolate Chunks
Zest of 1 Orange
3/4 Cup Heavy Cream, plus 2 Tablespoons for Brushing
1/4 Cup Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in whipped orange
1 Cup Powdered Sugar
2 Tablespoons Orange Juice
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients (Flour, Baking Powder, and Salt) excluding the extra sugar for sprinkling. Using a cheese grater, grate the frozen butter. Slowly mix in the grated frozen butter into the bowl with the dry ingredients If you prefer, you can use a pastry cutter with cold butter instead of frozen. Add in the chocolate chunks and orange zest.
Next, add the heavy cream (excluding the 2 tablespoons for brushing) and Jackson Morgan Southern Cream to the mixture. Stir slowly and be careful not to over mix. After combined, place dough on a floured pastry mat. Knead a few times with floured hands until a dough ball forms. Next, using hands form into an 8-inch circle. Cut pie shaped triangles out of the circle.
Place triangles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Put pan with scones in the freezer for 30 minutes to allow the scones to rest before baking. After 30 minutes, remove from freezer, using a pastry brush, brush the scones with heavy cream and sprinkle with course sugar. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden.
While waiting for the scones to cool, make the glaze. Combine powdered sugar and orange juice until you have a thick glaze, if not thick enough you can add more sugar. Once scones are cooled, drizzle glaze on top of the scones and enjoy!

I love Sunday brunches, there is something wonderful about having loved ones around the table after a relaxing Sunday morning or church service. Jackson Morgan Southern Cream’s whipped orange cream is my favorite flavor to serve when the temperatures start to warm up for Spring.
With Spring around the corner, I love the classic combination of blue and white with pops of orange. It is a refreshing color scheme after what feels like an extended winter. I had a sweet neighbor growing up that started my chinoiserie collection with a ginger jar she used as a vase for flowers. Since then, I have grown my blue and white collection. I love anytime I get to incorporate my treasured pieces into a tablescape.
For the menu, I served southern staples. We had fried chicken, mixed green salad, garlic green beans, cheese tray, potato salad, deviled eggs, and rolls. For dessert, orange chocolate cookies and a boozy creamsicle cake (recipe coming to The Sip soon). I incorporated oranges whenever I could to keep with the citrus party theme. I included orange marmalade on the cheese tray, orange slices on the salad, and Jackson Morgan whipped orange cream in the boozy cake. You could easily pick up these food items from the grocery store and serve in your own dishes for easy entertaining.
Why wait for a fancy occasion to use your nice entertaining pieces? I love to pull out my nice linens and plates for everyday occasions. I used South of Libbie navy monogrammed linen napkins and fancy blue patterned plates. A simple striped runner was used down the center of the table, I had a mix of serving dishes from Juliska, Nora Fleming, and William-Sonoma. The orange tree was such an easy centerpiece (the DIY coming soon to The Sip). For the place settings, I pinned watercolor place cards from Ruthie and Oliver Letterpress to mini oranges. I like to keep place cards with my family member’s names on hand for last minute entertaining. It is a nice touch that rarely goes unnoticed.

Is there anything better than a milkshake on a hot summer day? This creamsicle recipe is a favorite in the summer and so easy to make. We hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do.

This is one of the cocktails I served at our summer bbq, you can find more details about that party here. There is something classic about a whipped orange creamsicle that just takes me back to my childhood, without the alcohol of course. This adult version is a favorite amongst my friends and one of our most requested recipes.
Spiked Whipped Orange Milkshake
1 1/2 Ounces Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in whipped orange
3-4 Scoops of Vanilla Ice Cream
Whipped Cream (for Garnish)
Orange Creamsicle Cotton Candy (for Garnish)
For this tasty cocktail, add vanilla ice cream and Jackson Morgan in whipped orange to a blender and blend until well combined. You may need to add more ice cream depending on how thick you want your milkshake. Pour the mixture into a chilled glass, then top with whipped cream and orange cotton candy. I found the creamsicle cotton candy from Sugar Drop and it was a huge hit at the party.
We are thrilled our cocktail, The Max, is the drink of the month at Nashville Lifestyles. This tasty cocktail combines Jackson Morgan whipped orange with Afrohead rum and vanilla ice cream into a frozen treat that will remind you of your childhood.
This drink is available at Kung Fu Saloon in Midtown Nashville. We might be bias, but this is the perfect drink to sip on during patio season.

What's not to love about this time of year? Candy, cocktails, and festive costumes galore! For Halloween, I made my bar cart spooky. I scored this black rattan bar cart from World Market in the clearance section.
Jackson Morgan's whipped orange cream is the perfect drink for Halloween. I made the bottles spooky with 3D bat stickers. I used a plain chocolate cake and added this "Boo" cake topper from Swoozies. I love the way it turned out and it was easy! I found these spooky eyeball gum balls from Home Goods which worked perfect in my apothecary jar. This skull decanter was a great addition and also very practical. What is a Halloween party without candy? I stored candy in this Coton Color's bowl with the pumpkin attachment.
Stay tuned for my spooky orange cocktail recipe and more Halloween fun.

Did y'all check out the Facebook live that Brittany of Certified Celebrator did? How fun is this gift basket idea for summer?
We love the idea of building a gift basket full of goodies to give to a neighbor or friend for summer. A bottle of our whipped orange cream is the perfect addition.
It is almost officially summer! To celebrate, I hosted a start of summer porch party. Porch parties are such a southern tradition. I love the causal vibe of a summer party.
I wanted to keep it simple with just a few sips and snacks for guests. I could not think of anything more appropriate for the start of summer than salad in a jar, lobster rolls, cole slaw, corn, black cherries, and watermelon. To make the salad in a jar, simply place favorite salad ingredients in a mason jar, add twine and tie a fun plastic fork to the jar.
We served several Jackson Morgan cocktails including whipped orange and peaches and cream. Old fashioned glass sodas were in the ice bucket on the ground. I also had lemon water in my fun pineapple drink dispenser.
I wanted the gathering to feel causal, but yet still be festive. I hung outdoor curtains for privacy and planted window boxes to add a touch of color. I also hung outdoor party lights for lighting after the sun went down. We served food on melamine plates and platters, so we did not have to worry about the plates breaking outside. You can shop all of the decor from my porch party with the links below.

Valentine's Day always comes across as a girls holiday, but we cannot forget about the guys. I always struggle finding the right present amongst all of the pink and red candy and heart shaped gifts.
What guy would not love a cooler paired with a bottle of Jackson Morgan? We found this green Yeti cooler that would work well for tailgating or even hunting trips. Our whipped orange flavor is always a winner with men. A rugged vest or insulated cup that works with both hot or cold drinks also make great gifts for Valentine's Day.
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, I love dressing up and the cooler temperatures. To celebrate, I threw a little porch party at my family's farm. We had spiked desserts, tasty cocktails, and even "adult trick or treating". Why should kids be the only ones that receive treats on Halloween? Mini Jackson Morgan bottles are perfect for adult parties.
I made my bar cart the cocktail station complete with orange paper straws and festive cups. Jackson Morgan's whipped orange cream is the perfect flavor for Halloween. Who can resist the orange color? We mixed the whipped orange with Tennessee whiskey for an irresistible cocktail.
To throw your own Halloween porch party, all you need are favors such as our mini bottles, sweet treats, cocktails, and a few decorations such as pumpkins and a festive banner.
P.S. More Halloween treats to come on The Sip!
