Hey Pitches! I am so excited to share the pitches night in with peach perfect sangria that I threw for a few mom friends this past week. I love going to the movies, but I don’t always get a chance to get out of the house and missed the Bellas comeback for one last call in Pitch Perfect 3 when it hit theaters. So I was pumped to get to host a pitches night in for the Blu-ray release available now with the new musical performances, gag reel, and extended scenes not seen in theaters. Of course with any good movie watching you need cocktails and snacks! Peach perfect sangria and some fruit skewers and popcorn were the perfect accompaniments. And brought out a few mattresses and all the pillows so we could lounge while watching the movie.
For the party, I knew I wanted it to be casual and loungy, so I grabbed the mattress off my daybed and created a fun area complete with tons of pillows to sit and enjoy the movie. Then I added a few paper garlands around the room because it is the simplest way to make it feel festive! I even created a little printable art for above the bar cart to get everyone in the mood for a fun time.
Enough about the decorations! Let’s talk ’bout them drinks! Playing off the Pitch Perfect theme, I created the tastiest and most fruity peach perfect sangria to go along with the popcorn. Yum!
Peach Perfect Sangria Recipe
-1 can frozen peach/orange/strawberry juice
-2 cups peach vodka
-2 bottles moscato
-5 cups water
-1 bag frozen peaches
-3-4 mandarin oranges sliced
-1 cup watermelon chunks
-1 cup strawberry slices
Pour everything into a serving container and stir to combine. Chill for a few hours and then serve with a big scoop of fruit and a fun clay microphone drink stirrer.
To make the microphone drink stirrers, you will need gold and colored polymer clay. Begin by shaping the colored clay into a microphone handle and the gold clay into the microphone top. Press the two pieces together to form the microphone and use a needle or pin to create the microphone holes. Now press an acrylic drink stirrer into the clay microphone through the bottom. Remove the stirrer and bake at 300F for 15 minutes. Let cool and then use hot glue to reattach the drink stirrer into the hole at the bottom of the microphone.
