Award Show Party Food #RedCarpetReady with Daily's Cocktails and Wholly Guacamole (And a Giveaway)



I just love the Oscars, it is a wondrous night and I love to share the night with my family and friends. I love to hold a get together to watch, the pre-shows and the main event!  And what is a party without great food, and snacks. Do you love the red carpet events that come along with all of the various award shows? Sure we all do!  I just love the pageantry of the red carpet events and if you ask me, it's the best part of all of the award shows!  I was very fortunate to hold a pre-Oscar party  where my family and friends could walk our own red carpet! We all got together at my house to enjoys friend food and movies! Since the Oscars is not until next week, we enjoyed previous Oscar winning films instead. We watched favorites like The Green Mile, and The Hurt Locker. We all love chips and dips and Wholly Guacamole is a must for dip lovers.


I was also able to make little Wholly Guacamole appetizers including: (recipe from Wholly Guacamole website)

  Mexican Burger

Submitted by: Katie's Cucina from Orlando, Fl

 Ingredients
    1 lb of lean ground beef
    1 tbsp of minced jalapeno pepper (you can add another tsp if you really like things spicy)
    1 tbsp minced garlic
    2 tbsp of minced white or red onion
    1 tbsp strained fresh salsa per burger (this is so the liquid doesn't water down the bread)
    1 package of Wholly Guacamole dip
    Small handful of Shredded Cheddar for each burger
    Bacon (optional)
    1 box of Texas Toast Garlic Bread (8 slices in a box)
    4 dashes of each spice:
    McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning
    Ground Coriander
    Ground Cumin
    Chili Powder
    Paprika
Instructions
     Preheat grill and clean.
    In a large mixing bowl combine meat, jalapeno, onion, garlic and seasonings. Mix until well blended.
    Take your hand and make an "X" with the meat. This will help you divide the burgers evenly. Make 4 equal patties in an oval shape (not a circle) so that the patties will fit perfectly on the Texas Toast.
    Place the burgers on the grill with a low-medium temperature setting.

    Pre-heat and place the Texas Toast in the oven 8 minutes prior to burgers being done. Follow the box for cooking directions.

    Once your burger is cooked to your liking (we like them well), pull the burger off the grill.

    Lay a slice of Texas Toast on each plate. Then place burger on each piece of toast, followed by shredded cheese, bacon, strained fresh salsa, and guacamole. Place the other slice of Texas Toast on the side of the burger so your family/friends can see the true beauty of this burger! My guests loved the chips and dip and the burgers. What do you wash those tasty treats down with? Well we enjoyed Daily's Cocktails the Strawberry Daiquiris were amazing. And with no need to use a mixer a real time saver.



Why not savor the flavor with Daily's Cocktails. It is chilly, outside in the northeast but there is no reason that I can’t be transported right back to those warm summer days just relaxing at a resort with my feet in the sand and a drink in my hand.  These handy delicious pouches will help me hang on to the spirit of summer until summer arrives again.
I have always been a fan of pina coladas and strawberry daiquiris, there is nothing like a smooth cold fruity drink. And I just love that Daily's Cocktails has to alcohol right in the pouch, this makes making this so much easier. It is literally seconds from the pouch to your glass, and you are ready to enjoy. What a great concept. We had a great time walking our "red carpet" (it was really a plastic sheet but it was long and looked like a red carpet) it was a blast, and those with the best carpet walk got Wholly Guacamole stess avocados, the winners loved them!
