Throwing A Bachelorette Viewing Party

Today's Post Disclaimer: Please don't judge me for what I am about to say....
I have probably single-handedly kept ABC's Bachelor franchise in business, as I have watched every single season of the Bachelor and Bachelorette. I've even watched their not as popular spin-off, Bachelor Pad, and am looking forward to their new venture, Bachelor in Paradise, coming later this summer.

Throughout each season of the show, I always look forward to Monday nights. My roommate and I, sometimes a few friends, break out the popcorn and bubbly for a fun night of laughs and "OMG, did she really just pick him?!" moments. Whether you're a firm believer in the power of the show to develop long-lasting relationships or not, there is just something about each season that draws you in and keeps you hooked.

This coming Monday, a new Bachelorette begins her journey in finding everlasting love. Last season's Andi "it's not okay" Dorfman, embarks on what is certain to be "the most dramatic season, EVER (Chris Harrison's words). Andi rose to Bachelor fame by calling out the once heart throb Juan "it's okay" Pablo. Boy were we all fooled by him (we JUAN't no more of him!). 

This season is sure to be another drama filled, testosterone pumping, men hunkin' of a season. To kickoff the premiere right, grab your closest girlfriends, make some yummy popcorn and fix yourself some nice after-work bubbly. Below, find what you need to throw the best Bachelorette Premiere Viewing party, sure to be worthy of a rose.





Homemade Butter Popcorn

Pop the corn in a medium size pot, and then dump in a large bowl. 
Mix the popcorn with butter and salt, to your tasting, and then fill popcorn boxes.
I prefer making popcorn the old fashioned way, as to avoid all the extra additives in microwave bags.
To me, it also tastes much better and fresher when popped on the stove.

The Bach-tini!
Orange Juice
Champagne or Sprite
Master of Mixes - Grenadine Syrup
Ice

In a medium size pitcher, fill with ice. Fill 2/3 of the pitcher with orange juice. Fill the rest of the way with either champagne or Sprite. Add a tablespoon of the grenadine syrup. Feel free to adjust amounts based on your liking. Mix well and enjoy!

To finish out the party essentials, grab some colorful paper straws, roses for your gal pals and your Bachelorette season brackets. Now you're Bachelorette Premiere Viewing Party ready!!

Be sure to stop back by the blog next Tuesday, for my drama filled premiere recap!
Happy viewing!!
