It’s February and aside from the major international winter-themed sporting event that the entire world will be watching, we also have the biggest football game of the season just a couple of days away! To make sure everyone at your Caliterra watch party will have a great time, here are a few ideas for some Texas-themed and Dripping Springs sourced halftime appetizers your guests are sure to devour.
Local Beer Queso Dip
An easy Texas favorite, and certainly a favorite among all the residents in our master-planned community, you can never go wrong with queso! To make it even better and give it a Texas twang, try making beer queso with one of the beers from our many local breweries in Dripping Springs. While we could give you suggestions on which local brewery to go to, it really comes down to who’s your favorite. Whether it’s Twisted X, Acopon, Family Business or Suds Monkey, you simply can’t go wrong.
Buffalo Chicken Celery Sticks
For a tasty classic that will keep your guests light on their feet and coming back for more, you’ve got to include these buffalo chicken celery sticks on your list of halftime appetizers. Not only is it a dish that everyone will love, but you can also source your celery locally from Bella Verdi in Dripping Springs. You may also be pleasantly surprised by just how much of your favorite greens are being grown right down the road from our master-planned community.
Locally Sourced Sweets
These next ones might not technically be appetizers, but if you’ve read our blog before, you’ve probably seen us highlight Skull & Cakebones Craft Bakery. Despite whether you’re needing some sugary condolence or celebration depending on how your team is doing at halftime, you’ll want to make sure you have some sweets from Skull & Cakebones are there! Pick up a variety of cookies and other baked goods that would put a smile on anybody’s face, regardless of the score.
We hope you add these fun, Dripping Springs-inspired halftime appetizers to your menu for this weekend. Let us know who you’ll be rooting for by connecting with Caliterra in Dripping Springs on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
