The Best Sloppy Joe's and Old Fashioned Cocktails You'll Ever Have!

We don't just love making the best cocktails ever, but also the best food and pairings.  The BBQ flavor in this special Sloppy Joe recipe pairs incredibly well with the tangy orange lemon of the old fashioned.

To Make the Old Fashioned Drinks

Shake with ice 2 oz. JABnow Organic Orange Lemon drink mixer, 4-6 oz. water; 4 oz. whiskey or bourbon and pour over ice.  We garnish with Lombardi cherries.  They're fun to drink out of Mason jars as we show.

The Best Sloppy Joe Recipe Ever

1.5-2.0 lbs. 85-90% lean hamburger

1T. olive oil

1 medium onion, diced

1 green pepper diced

1/3 c. packed brown sugar

3T apple cider vinegar

1-1/2 cups ketchup

3T. Sweet Baby Ray's Honey BBQ Sauce, or sauce of your choice

salt and pepper to taste

Soft, bakery hamburger buns

Saute onions, peppers and hamburger in olive oil until hamburger is brown.  Add the rest of the ingredients.  Bring to simmer.  Taste for seasoning.  Serve.  Add any sides you like; we continued the BBQ theme with BBQ potato chips.  Potato and macaroni salads are great.  This recipe can be doubled, even tripled for a crowd and kept warm in a crock pot.
