Tailgate Cocktail: Arkansas Edition


As we reach the halfway point in the season we find our beloved Crimson Tide undefeated, ranked number one, and in control of their own destiny for the SEC and BCS National Championships. Life is good for Alabama fans right now since after some early sputtering, the team seems to be putting more complete games together.

This week a struggling Arkansas team comes into Tuscaloosa. The Razorbacks are undermanned, transitioning to a new style of play under new Coach Bret Beilema, and still recovering from the Bobby Petrino and John L. Smith debacles.  For all intents and purposes, Alabama should be able to take care of business and continue their march toward Atlanta.  This being the SEC though, danger can lurk around every corner so hopefully the Tide will come out focused, rendering these hogs into sausage over the course of sixty minutes.

In hopes that the Tide will be able to handle Arkansas by keeping things pretty plain vanilla, for this week’s game I have chosen the Vanilla Pig as our pregame libation.


  • 3 oz vanilla flavored vodka
  • 6 oz Dr Pepper
  • Ice


  • Over ice pour the vanilla vodka into a glass or cup
  • Add the Dr Pepper slowly and allow the fizz to dissapate
  • Stir slowly

Here’s to remaining undefeated and treating Bielema like he is still a member of the B1G and dispatching his Hogs with extreme prejudice.  As always, enjoy responsibly and Roll Tide.
