Tailgating before a big college football game is a time-honored tradition across the country, but no one does tailgating quite like Louisiana natives. If you want to capture the mood of an authentic Louisiana tailgate party close to your home, you can throw together a Cajun tailgate using a few key products to create the right atmosphere. Here are some suggestions to get your tailgate off to the right start:
- Cool off with red cream soda: The right refreshments are essential to a great tailgate, and nothing says Cajun like Barq’s Red Cream Soda. Tailgaters of all ages can enjoy this creamy, bubbly beverage to beat the heat during the outdoor festivities. Give your soda a grown-up twist with a splash of vanilla vodka or spiced rum.
- Spice up your grill Cajun style: Firing up the grill is a must when you are tailgating, and there is no better way to add big flavor than with some spice blends and marinades imported directly from Louisiana. Tony Chachere Creole Seasoning adds just the right kick of salt and spice for anything you can think to throw on the grill. When you are grilling sausages or hot dogs, add some big flavor with a dollop of Arnaud’s Creole Mustard.
- Recover with Bayou coffee: When you are feeling the aftermath of your festivities after the game, there is no better way to unwind than with a cup of LSU Bayou Blend Coffee. Brew it strong for some real Louisiana flavor that will get you back on your feet after a southern style tailgate.
