One more Basketball Party idea for you today before the big Final Four game. Which hooray! I have Duke going the whole way. My bracket is totally killing it!
If you follow me on Instagram or have been reading this blog for awhile, you know I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Diet Coke and Coke Zero (see my recipe for Coca-Cola Mousse and my beloved Cherry Cokes). I am a daily drinker and use any and every excuse to serve it to my guests, friends and neighbors. And lately, thanks to the lovely people at Sonic who gave me the idea, I’ve been spicing my drinks up with syrups.
After consuming these flavored drinks for awhile I got to thinking, ‘this would be the greatest party activity/station ever!’ I mean a Coke Bar!? I can’t think of anything more wonderful. And it would be perfect for your Final Four viewing parties. All you need is a bunch of cans of Coke Zero (I like the mini four packs, you can actually find Coca-Cola NCAA® Final Four Packs at WalMart right now), a few different syrup flavors and some lemons and limes for extra punch, and you have yourself an interactive Coke bar. Guests love the opportunity to pick and choose their flavors and the station serves as a great conversation starter.
When preparing a Coke bar, I typically purchase the mini cans of Coke Zeros because of their great size. They fill a glass perfectly and provide your guests with the opportunity of trying out a bunch of flavors. In addition to the Cokes, I put out the different flavors of syrup (vanilla, lime, cherry and coconut are always a big hit) and some lemon and limes for extra flavor. I also like to keep a huge pail of ice full so the drinks are always cold because what is a Coke if it’s not cold?
Keep reading below to see how to make the perfect flavored Coke.
