It's Gameday for America

Election Day 2012 is here and that's a great reason to celebrate with some gameday style.  Change up the team colored food to red, white and blue and you're all set.  Check out this post from the 4th of July for some great patriotic colored yums.


And for a little "party" fun, you can throw back a little Jolly Rancher cocktail...this recipe is for a shot, but you could always top with some club soda or Sprite to transform it into a fizzy cocktail.  You could also make some for your gameday in team colors.

I spy some "team" colors
