Happy 50th Super Bowl Sunday weekend! Almost like Thanksgiving in that it is a day of American indulgence, yet instead of turkey and cranberries it is all about chicken wings and 9-layer dips….not exactly the healthiest. Instead on this day of revelry consider these tasty options if laying out a festive spread this Sunday. Wings aren’t involved, but these will still please your crowd. Also, a few tasty cocktails to celebrate the big game. Go Broncos!

Angostura bitters – 2 dashes
Preparation: Add all ingredients to an ice filled shaker and shake until the egg white becomes very frothy. Strain into a coup or martini glass and enjoy.
Gin & Tonic
