Grilled Chicken Tailgate Sliders with Frozen Cosmopolitans

Maria & Billy

If you are anything like Marc and, I you know July is the perfect month for grilling out.   We have spent a lot of summer nights so far sitting on our patio with dinner on the grill.  The heat of summer is here and it’s the perfect time to light the charcoal and enjoy some hot grilled delicacies.   This recipe was inspired by the way Billy proposed to Maria on the 50 yard line of the Tennessee Titans stadium. It made perfect sense to tie in some tailgating fare for their custom recipe. Maria and Billy are saying “I do” tomorrow in front of all of their family and friends and we started the celebration early by making some delicious grilled chicken tailgate sliders.  The chicken was perfectly cooked and the coleslaw and grilled pepper gave it just enough crunch to make this a tasty bite.  And we couldn’t stop there – of course we had to make a cocktail for these two.   Since they really enjoy ice cream so much, we made a small tribute to their pup Kosmo with a frozen Kosmopolitan.   This may not be easy to whip up on a day of tailgating but it is perfect for a hot july evening after dinner drink.

We look forward to capturing all of the excitement of your wedding day tomorrow – we will see you soon!
