Alabama Crimson Tide game day recipes and cocktails! These appetizers, sweet treats & drinks are perfect for an Alabama Tailgate!
Years ago, I decided to put together a tailgate series called "Tailgate Thursday". In that series, I shared facts about each of the football teams in the SEC Conference as well as themed cocktails, appetizers and desserts for each tailgate.
As they became a bit outdated over the past decade, I have updated my Tailgate Thursday posts and am sharing tailgating recipes from other bloggers and football fans in team-themed round ups that will make planning your tailgate party a breeze!
Whether you are a fan of each team highlighted or simply enjoy football season, I hope you'll find some recipes to share with family and friends at your tailgate or game day watch parties!
I'm kicking off Tailgate Thursday by featuring the Alabama Crimson Tide!
