Whipped Orange Float

When the game (or the weather) starts heating up, tailgaters tend to reach for something that offers a little extra chill factor. My family appreciates that this Orange Creamsicle Float only includes three ingredients and requires no fancy blender or mixer, just your favorite team tumbler. Truly a float for football fans, this chilled concoction comes together so quickly, cocktail connoisseurs will be back on the sideline before the end of the timeout.


Orange Creamsicle Float Recipe

4 scoops of vanilla ice cream

1 ½ ounce Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in Whipped Orange

Orange cream soda

Directions:

Pour above ingredients into a cup in the order listed, best enjoyed immediately. Tip: to keep ice cream cold in a cooler, try using dry ice.

Boozy Orange Cupcakes

Even if you are not cheering for the Volunteers, these boozy orange cupcakes will more than satisfy the sweet tooth at your tailgate! Boasting a winning record, these treats do not disappoint. The recipe comes together so simply, no scouting or reviewing film required! In fact, more than likely you already have all the necessary ingredients on hand. Check out this power play of a recipe.

Boozy Orange Cupcakes Recipe

Ingredients:

1 Store-bought box of vanilla cake mix
1 Container of Favorite Vanilla Icing or homemade icing

1/2 Cup Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in Orange

1/2 Cup Water

Orange sprinkles (optional)

Directions:

Gather all of your ingredients per the recipe on the box. Make the cake mix according to the instructions on the box, but substitute 1/2 cup of Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in whipped orange cream and 1/2 cup water for 1 cup of water. (Base amount of JM/water on amount of water your box recipe calls for.) You can add more Jackson Morgan instead of milk if you prefer it to be boozier. Pour mix into a lined cupcake pan and bake according to instructions on the cake mix box. Once cupcakes have cooled, top with vanilla icing and orange sprinkles. Serve immediately or keep in the fridge until football fans arrive.

Tailgating Party Bar Set Up

Continuing the theme with our tailgating party at the family farm, we are sharing our bar set up today. What is a tailgate without a libation station? For our rad retro-themed tailgate, we broke out our Tennessee orange rolling cooler. Filled with our favorite beverages, this cooler keeps Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in whipped orange cream, salted caramel, and brown sugar at the perfect sipping temperature! This chilled chest offers plenty of space, so feel free to toss in some bottled non-alcoholic drinks like root beer and orange cream soda as well.

Our station is decked out in vintage team decor from a throwback Tennessee pennant, puffy pom poms, foam fingers, old school orange megaphone, and a crate full of footballs. Who doesn’t dig this snazzy referee balloon? This guy might turn into a punching bag before the end of the game, but we saw him at Party Hat Paper Company and invited him to the shindig.

Feel a little friendly competition coming on? Divide into teams and break out the boards and bags! We all know cornhole is better with cocktails, so mix up Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in cute custom cups that echo your theme. We scooped up these “Go Ya’ll” and “Tailgating with Jackson Morgan” reusable plastic containers with lids and straws from our friends at Party Hat Paper Company. They take the stress out of party planning so we can focus on family and fun!

Stay tuned to see the starting line up on our Tasty Tailgating Menu.

Tailgating at the Farm

Our family loves getting together on game day. One of our favorite places to cheer on our team is this little piece of land with a great water view - Our Family Farm! Nestled in our hometown of Fayetteville, Tennessee, we love the look of our team colors reflecting off the smooth water of the pond. The farm is less crowded than a busy stadium, and far enough away that the neighbors cannot hear us contesting every questionable call. We enjoy having friends and family over to celebrate game day with cornhole, cocktails, and easy appetizers.

Venue

This time we took our tailgate game to a new level with a rad retro makeover! The vintage camper we rented from The Flying Ham in Nashville was spot on for this event. With its cozy set up, comfortable seating, and vintage vibe - you cannot go wrong renting one of these for your next event. We embraced the camper’s nostalgic feel and incorporated some old school gear in our decor as well. Sipping on something with a little extra pizzazz makes close games and overtimes a little more bearable, always keep some Jackson Morgan Southern Cream nearby.

Cocktails

Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in whipped orange cream is the perfect flavor for tailgating in Tennessee. Add ice and your favorite brand of Tennessee whiskey for am easy game day cocktail. Plastic tailgating cups with sayings such as “Go Y’all” and “Tailgating with Jackson Morgan” from Party Hat Paper Company made sipping cocktails even more festive. As the weather becomes colder, our family adds Jackson Morgan in salted caramel to the line up for spiked coffee or hot chocolate. Top with marshmallows for the best treat!

Decor

Set up was a snap with our Custom Party in a Box from Party Hat Paper Company. They chose party goods, signage, table cloth, cups, straws - the works, and it all came in our choice of color scheme: orange, green, and teal. The turf table runner was the perfect touch to pull it all together. Incorporating some larger than life pieces like the gold “Touchdown” balloons creates decor with a significant impact! Our family loves capturing memories at these good-time gatherings, so we also featured a boxwood wall with an orange T from The Flower Walls Nashville. Throw in some peppy pom poms, foam fingers, megaphone, and footballs as props, and you have the perfect photo backdrop. Stay tuned for more details from this fun tailgate including cocktail recipes, menu, and more.

Boozy Orange Cream Slush

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

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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.

Cheers!

Spring Brunch Party Favors

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?

Orange Cake with Boozy Cream Cheese Icing

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

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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.

Cheers!

Boozy Orange Chocolate Scones

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

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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!

Cheers!

Spring Brunch

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.

Color Scheme

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.

Menu

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.

Table

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.

Special thanks to South of Libbie, Nora Fleming, Society Social, Juliska, and Ruthie and Oliver Letterpress for partnering with us on this party.

Spiked Whipped Orange Milkshake

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

Spooky Halloween Bar Cart

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.

Start of Summer Porch Party

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. 

Menu

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. 

Drinks

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. 

Decor

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.
