Fall Cocktail Inspirations

September 26th, 2014

fall cocktail recipesFootball is in full swing, the leaves are starting to change colors, and there is certainly a chill permeating the Towson air. Know what that means? It’s time to start thinking about some great fall cocktails for entertaining! Whether you’re having a Halloween party or a get together with friends and family, it’s always a good idea to have a seasonal drink recipe on hand. The great part about fall recipes is that most people love fall flavors. Everything apple, pumpkin, and cinnamon is great to use as a base this time of year. Ready to get your fall party on? Try out some of these recipes!

Fall Inspired Recipes

Hard Cider Sangria – Hard cider has become a staple of fall drinks in the past year or so. Even people who don’t like beer are starting to gravitate to hard cider. It’s a little bit sweeter than beer and leaves you with a crisp apple flavor.
What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup of quartered, thinly sliced apples (green, yellow, red, or any combination thereof).
  • 1 orange, quartered and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ cup apple brandy
  • 22 oz hard cider

Combine it all together, pour over ice, and enjoy!

Caramel Appletini – Uhm, yum. Nothing says fall like a great caramel apple. Try the grownup version with this great caramel appletini recipe!
What you’ll need

  • 1 oz caramel Irish cream
  • ½ oz green apple vodka
  • 1 slice apple
  • 1 tsp caramel

Shake caramel Irish cream with green apple vodka and ice. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with apple slice and caramel. You can either drizzle the caramel in the bottom of the glass or on top of the drink.

Cinnamon Toast – You may have already had a “cinnamon toast crunch” shot (Fireball and Rumchata), but this one is a little bit different. If you need a warm drink on a cool night, this one will spice it up perfectly.
What you’ll need:

  • 1 ¼ oz spiced rum
  • 6 oz hot apple cider
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

Rim your glass with cinnamon and sugar first (using the spiced rum to make it stick). Mix spiced rum and hot apple cider together in the glass! It’s a quick and tasty way to warm up!

The Baltimore Orioles Make History

September 17th, 2014

CVP SpecialsCan you feel the excitement in the air in Baltimore? After a great 26-6 football win over the Steelers last week for the Ravens, the Baltimore Orioles refused to be outshined. For the first time in 17 years, the Orioles have clinched the American League Eastern Division. Having only lost one of their last 10 games, the Orioles are on a roll. Baltimore fans across the city were extremely excited to see how well the baseball team is doing (we’re not diehard fans around here or anything). Need a place to catch the next few games and watch the playoffs that the Orioles WILL DEFINITELY BE AT?!

Baseball Specials at CVP Towson

If you haven’t joined us for an Os game yet, you’ve been missing out. There’s only one way to celebrate clinching the division, and that’s with good food, good friends, and even better beer. Come in during the Os games for:

  • $2.00 Miller Lite & Coors Light bottles
  • $4.00 Bacardi “O” Drinks
  • $4.00 Os Bomb
  • $9.00 Bucket of 5 beers (Miller Lite or Coors Light)

If the game happens to fall during happy hour, you can also indulge in some of our best five dollar food menu, because what pairs better with beer and sports than appetizers? Some of our favorite shareables (or non-shareables, we don’t judge) include the following:

  • Nachos mini mountain – mostly just because it tastes as awesome as it sounds
  • Your choice of 5 wings (hot, mild, Cajun, honey sriracha, bbq, old bay, jerk, or sweet chili)
  • Bacon cheddar cheese fries
  • Southwest chicken egg rolls

We’ve got plenty of other 5 dollar snacks that you can check out here. Happy hour is from 3 PM – 7 PM Monday through Thursday and Friday from 3 PM – 9 PM.

Still Need to do a Draft Party? Come Out to CVP Towson!

August 29th, 2014

fantasy football draftSure, everyone cares about how their favorite football team does each week, but there’s a team that’s arguably just as important: your fantasy team. Putting together a fantasy team requires strategy, planning, and sometimes being a little bit underhanded. Regardless of how you choose your fantasy team, you want it to do well and it’s always more fun to choose your team surrounded by the friends that you’ll be playing with for the rest of the season. If you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to do your fantasy draft, this is it. Preseason is almost over and the Ravens first game is next Sunday.

Why Draft at CVP Towson?

  • Draft together – It’s easy to sit on your couch at home and draft your team while obsessively watching your favorite show on Netflix, but it’s definitely more fun to get out and enjoy a draft with your favorite people. Plus, you can make negotiations and get a better visual of who has what when everyone is drafting together. Bring your laptop or smart phone with you to keep track of who you want on your team while spending time with friends.
  • Snack and draft – Drafting is hard work that requires sustenance. Drafting without good bar food is just wrong. Do dinner first or enjoy a bunch of different appetizers to share amongst yourselves (since you won’t be sharing your favorite wide receivers). Buffalo wings, Southwest Chicken Egg Rolls, and our Nacho Mountain are all great shareable snacks that will keep your mind and body sustained while you fight your coworkers for who gets which Manning brother.
  • Draft and draft – Yes, you read that right. Drink a cold draft while you draft! Set aside an afternoon to hang out, tip back a few cold drinks this weekend, and work out all of your favorite draft picks. We’ve got plenty of your favorites on draft plus all of your favorite mixed drinks. The best bartenders in Towson will be working hard this weekend to help you enjoy both of your drafts!

How to Host Your Draft Party

It’s pretty simple, really. Either call or come in, bring your game face, your draft stuff, and relax. We’ll do the rest. Who knows? We may even offer up some advice on choosing the best draft picks! Charles Village Pub is located at 19 w. Pennsylvania Avenue, Towson, MD 21204.

Join CVP for Cornhole, Beer Pong & Flip Cup Tournament in September

August 13th, 2014

beer pong tournamentStop whatever you’re doing and pull out your calendar. Got it? Okay, now mark down the evening of Thursday, September 4th as “busy,” because you’re going to be playing cornhole, beer pong and/or flip cup with us at CVP Towson! Come out and grab dinner first and then stick around until 9 to get started with any of the games in the tournament. You don’t need to sign up in advance, but if you’d like to, feel free to give us a call to find out more about the tournament set up.

Some Rules

If you’ve never played any of these games before, don’t worry. We’ve got a lowdown on some of the rules here and we’ll go over the finer points with you if you’ve got any questions before the tournament. Be sure to ask about our house rules!

Cornhole: This game has become popular with people of all ages recently because it’s simple and fun. For cornhole, you have two slightly sloped boards with holes in the back; each team also gets 4 bean bags. You and your teammate will stand on opposite sides. You’ll then toss the beanbags from the sides of the boards. You cannot go past the front of the board or you’ll have a penalty called on your team. If a bag hits the ground and bounces on to the board, it does not count. Scoring can be a little complicated in cornhole. Any bag on the board is worth a point and a bag that goes through the hole is worth 3 points. However, the bean bags can cancel each other out. For example, if you get one beanbag on the board and the opposite team also gets a beanbag on the board, no one gets a point. Play to 21 points.

Beer Pong: This is the simplest of all of the games. Ten cups will be arranged on opposite sides of a table and filled with a small amount of beer (or water) in the bottom. You’ll have a team of two and the objective is to get your ping pong ball into the other team’s cups. You’ll stand with your teammate for pong. Your elbow may not extend over the table when you throw and if you bounce a ball, the other team is allowed to swat it off. Any other rules for beer pong are house rules. Cheers!

Flip cup: This one takes a bit of explaining. For more information on how to play flip cup, please visit this website.

Summer Shot Recipes: Part 2

July 30th, 2014

summer shotsYou’ve probably already started to hear commercials about fall on TV and the radio – but we’re not ready to let go of summer just yet! There’s still a whole month left before the days start to cool off and college kicks off again. Why not enjoy the last few weeks of summer without worrying about the fact that fall is just around the corner? We’ve got just the thing to keep your mind in summer mode: more summery shots! The end of summer is a great time to throw fun parties and spend a few more days by the pool with friends, drink in hand and sun overhead!

Fun Summer Shots (or drinks)

  • Blue Hawaii – Nothing says summer like the idea of palm trees and tropical blue waters. This shot is a tribute to all that is summer

o   1 part vodka

o   1 part rum

o   1 part blue curacao

o   Splash sour mix

o   Pineapple juice

o   To make: Mix the first 3 ingredients together in a shaker over ice. Shake and pour into glasses. Top with pineapple juice and a cherry for garnish.

  • Bomb Pop Shot – Just because the Fourth of July has passed doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy patriotic shots. These are fun to layer.

o   1 part lemon lime soda

o   1 part lemon vodka

o   2 parts blue curacao

o   2 parts grenadine

o   To make: Mix sprite and vodka together in shaker over ice. Pour into glass. Use a spoon to carefully layer the blue curacao on top of the sprite/vodka layer. Pour grenadine in along the side of the shot glass (careful not to mix it) to get a waterfall effect. The grenadine should sink to the bottom of the glass.

  • Orange Creamscicle Shot – If you’re a fan of orange crush (or the classic orange creamscicle ice cream treat), you’ll love this shot.

o   1 part vanilla flavored vodka

o   ½ part triple sec

o   2 parts orange juice

o   2 parts half and half

o   To make: This one is pretty simple. Mix all ingredients in a shaker over ice, shake, and pour!
