Nov. 16, 2017
There’s nothing quite like spending some time and sharing a meal with your best friends for Thanksgiving. Kick your celebration up in Simply Perfect Patrón Silver 1-Liter fashion with these suggestions that will make the fun funner and your crew have visions of cranberry sauce and Pomegranate Margaritas dancing in their heads all the way until next year’s feast.
Smiles and Sips
As we all know, festive cocktails are at the top of the list of Friendsgiving must-haves. Bring the party (and plenty to go around at that) with a Limited-Edition Patrón Silver 1-Liter that will make enough drinks for your best pals and then some. No need to go over-the-top with the table decorations, the Patrón Silver 1-Liter is festive and bright enough to be your new favorite centerpiece at the table.
Make Sound Waves
Pay homage to some of your group’s best karaoke nights by putting together the perfect sing-along-inducing playlist for your night of food and fun. Start with the oldies but goodies as everyone is arriving and pouring themselves a drink, slow it down so that the conversation can shine at the table, and then kick the party up a notch as the meal ends with the jams that just never get old. You don’t have to insist that whoever is singing lead use a drumstick as a stand-in microphone, but it wouldn’t hurt.
Center of Attention Side Dishes
Even if you aren’t the one making the main dish shine, you still have a perfect Friendsgiving opportunity to bring the heat to the table. Up the Sweet Potato Pie ante (or the dish of your choosing) by adding touches of bold flavors to classic combos. Give Jalisco-style flair to the classics like green bean casserole by embracing your inner foodie who has a knack for spice. Ditch the cream of mushroom soup in favor of the real thing, combining every ‘shroom you can get your hands on, from shitake to oyster, with a big punch of jalapeño heat. Take a twist off of a lemon for your Cranberry Cooler and then add a touch of zest to your dish for a citrus infusion to brighten things up. Of course, don’t forget to give the bar cart the same treatment, adding seasonal fruits and herbs for Friendsgiving-ready cocktails.
Make the Moments Last
Between chowing down, swapping stories, and belting out jams, you’ll want to make sure to capture the memories so that they stick around past the new year. Gather up some instant film or disposable cameras for everyone to snap away with throughout the night and don’t forget to shake your cocktails like you shake your pictures. If you don’t want to go as analog with your picture taking, set up a festive background full of leaves and sparkle or great table-scape to make your digital snaps shine. Say “Cheers!”
No matter what flair you add to the festivities, your night is sure to be a hit purely by gathering all of your favorite people around one table. Cheers to you and your friends! Have a very happy Friendsgiving.
