A Spring Fling with Cranberry Zing!


As you can see from the picture below, the only juice in the Steece household is from Simply Orange Juice Company. So when I was presented with the opportunity to review the brand new Simply Cranberry Cocktail ~ I jumped at the chance!
04 april 2012 134
(No lie- we had Simply Lemonade® with Raspberry, Simply Limeade®, Simply Orange®, and Simply Lemonade® in our refrigerator before we even knew about the Simply Cranberry Cocktail review! They are staples in our fridge.)

The peeps from Simply Orange Juice company were kind enough to send some free coupons, and I was off to the store to plan my “Spring Fling with Cranberry Zing” party!
03 march 2012 430


I had a blast scouring the pages of Pinterest (look me up!) to find various recipes that would compliment my Simply Cranberry Cocktail. I even created a Cranberry Party Board!
Here was my spread:

…and I like this picture because it represents OUR reality--a pretty dinner table filled with yummy food for a party. Oh, and please pay no attention to the toy cars and train table in the background.
04 april 2012 157



The MENU:

The Autumn Chopped Salad was UH-MAY-ZING with dried cranberries, pears, pecans, bacon, etc! Definitely a crowd pleaser and my personal favorite food item of the evening.
04 april 2012 152


OH. MY. GOOD. GAWSH. Cranberry Baked Brie. I’ve died and gone to heaven. You must make this and you must make it NOW.
04 april 2012 148


I wasn’t a huge fan of the Cranberry Chicken Wings & Drummettes. The glaze had good flavor~ but I think the meat would taste better grilled verses baked.
04 april 2012 14304 april 2012 144


YUMMMM…the Slow Cooker Cranberry Barbeque Meatballs were DELISH and Joe’s fav!
04 april 2012 153


Ashley (my sis-in-law) and myself, trying them out! Sweet and tangy.
04 april 2012 172


Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies. One of my new favorite recipes!
04 april 2012 149


If you’re tired of baking the same ‘ole Chocolate Chip~ you should definitely try these chewy, delightful cookies. They’ll disappear within minutes!
04 april 2012 132


6 happy little party goers, giving the cookies 12 enthusiastic thumbs up! (Andrew, Savannah, Ethan, Kinley, Benjamin, & Madelyn)
04 april 20121


“Gosh Suz, thanks so much for taking a pic of us while stuffing our faces with food…” Can you see the daggers in their eyes? LOL. (Liz & Ashley)
04 april 2012 180


And now on to the drinks…
04 april 2012 135-001


Jess, Liz, and I loved our Cosmos! It was the perfect combination of cranberry juice cocktail, orange juice, and lemon-lime soda.
04 april 2012 168


This picture isn’t forced and awkward or anything…LOL. Joe, Ed, and Collin with their Cranberry Vodkas.
04 april 2012 169


Crisp, cool, and refreshing…even better when you serve chilled in an Aggie tumbler. (tee hee)
04 april 2012 171


Of course I had to make “kiddie cocktails” for the wee little ones!
04 april 2012 174


CHEERS! Me and my sweet Savi.
04 april 2012 182


All smiles for the Cranberry Kiss!
04 april 2012 178


Speaking of kisses…I stole some sugar from my adorable little nephew Sawyer!
04 april 2012 187


And for the party favors, I wrapped up some of those yummy Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies for my guests to take home.
04 april 2012 183


We had a blast getting together with our family & friends. Thank you BlogHer and Simply Orange Juice Company for funding our Cranberry Partaaay! The food was amazing and the drinks were even better!



I am definitely a fan of the new Simply Cranberry Cocktail and here’s why…
04 april 2012 142


1. REFRESHING TASTE~ I am SUPER picky about my cranberry juice because more often then not, it is waaaaay too tart. Simply Cranberry Cocktail is the perfect combination of sweet and tart.

2. ALL NATURAL~ There are literally 4 ingredients on the back of the bottle: pure filtered water, cranberry juice, natural sugar, & natural flavors. NOT FROM CONCENTRATE. NO ADDED PRESERVATIVES.

3. SQUARED BOTTLE SHAPE~ I LOVE that the 59oz carafe fits perfectly into my refrigerator door! (FYI- Simply Cranberry Cocktail is also available in 13.5oz single serve carafes if you are always on the go--like ME!).

Holy toledo, that food looks TERRIFIC!

Entertaining is so much fun, but most of my entertain-ware is still in boxes from my recent move.

Whenever possible, I like to incorporate a theme (cinco/fiesta party, downhome/country style, etc) where the food & beverages match the cute decorations. Pinterest is a HUGE help in this arena!

My favorite way to make a party is with 15 of my favorite ladies...I think you might know them! ;)

Chrissy said...

I LOVE to entertain, because I get to pull out my "inner Martha Stewart" and go all out. I love making the table pretty, coordinating all the food, and of course, serving tasty wine. :)

Plus I actually get to use my dining room table..since my hubs and I usually sit at the coffee table and eat dinner ;)

I'm not a big entertainer. I'd rather go somewhere and be entertained...but that being said, for the first time in my nearly 2 years of marriage (2 years on May 14) I am having a BBQ for all my family for Mother's Day. Hopefully I don't burn anything or kill anyone. ;-)

It seems like every time we are entertaining, we make a pitcher of peach iced tea. It makes the house smell like peaches and people love it!

I love coordinating decorations. I also love a good themed party with menu. It is about the food for me and trying new recipes, but of course the atmosphere is always made fun with decorating.

My favorite drink is cranberry juice with a splash of orange juice. My grandma started me on it when I was little, and I still love it today. I have gotten my son to drink it now to as long as I add OJ. :)

I love cranberries so this was a fun post to read! I will have to go and get me some Simply Cranberry Cocktail! :) I've had their orange juice many times and it is great so I'm sure this will be too.

My favorite way to entertain lately is to BBQ....simple, easy, fun, and a great way to enjoy the outdoors now that the weather is getting nice again. And of course, I have to turn to Pinterest for some fun recipies and cute decor to spice up our gatherings a bit!

My favorite way to make a party at my home more festive is selecting a theme. So, the decorations, food, drink, party favor and maybe dress code too, would all follow the same theme. It’s really festive and fun!

I always have my four-year-old make a paper chain that color coordinates with the party's theme. It gives her lots of cutting, taping/gluing and pattern making practice! Plus, she is so proud to contribute to the decorating. It is always fun to wind the chain up the stairs banister.

Can't wait to try the juice and recipes!

I love to entertain and I love to cook. I love scouring the web to find new recipes then making a shopping list. Once everything is prepared I love displaying the foods prepared and watching my guest enjoy. It's fun to make recipe cards to pass out when the evening is over and know that next time you visit with your friends it's likely that you will see one of your recipes being used at their party.

Great party! I love looking on Pinterest for party ideas! My boys are turning 4 in a couple of weeks and all my free time is looking up ideas on Pinterest!

I say "were" because they did not last long in our house!

I love to make every day a little special. I use different cloth table cloths, pretty cake stands. I make almost everything at home, I can't stand processed foods (the taste or the prices) and I always "style" my spreads to make even the simplest food look really pretty and fresh and tasty :)

The Simply Raspberry Lemonade is a family favorite every summer, and I'm a big fan of cranberry juice.
We have no idea how to entertain, other than an occasional Thanksgiving. We have a new grill, though, and we're determined to host a barbeque this summer. It will be our first party, uh, ever. Those recipes you listed might come in very handy!

Little Bird said...

Not looking to enter the drawing and this MAY NOT be the demographic Simply Cranberry is seeking...

As a nurse, I'm sure you can understand this...I had jaw surgery in February and Simply Cranberry was the first and the BEST thing I drank when I came out of surgery. It is just tangy enough to wake up a previously anesthetized person and flavorful enough to taste really good even through (sorry) the funk of a mouth that can't be brushed. Drank a lot of it during my recovery.

It scares me to make new things for parties, so usually I test things out on our home group. Lucky them, pinterest is usually full of yummies! I'm also turnings a new leaf and not waiting till the last minute to decorate. And I try to keep a theme so I don't try to do ten different things!

I always like to have a theme for the food & drink. We did a taco bar one year for my daughter's birthday and all the appetizers and drinks were authentic Mexican too.

Just getting together with family and friends makes an occasion festive. Adding good food just makes it better.

We don't entertain very often. But like you, we LOVE the Simply Lemonade drinks.

I love having tons of little finger foods as the main course! You can have a huge variety of food to offer and appetizers are always delicious!

I love to have parties at my house. I haven't had one in a while, but used to have them about 2-3 times a year. Good music is always key!
