Party Mix Spiced With Pappy Pepper Sauce

A party mix is great to set out as guests arrive, get their beverages and start to mingle. Spice up your standard snack mix with our barrel-aged hot sauce. Then, unless the entire party can gather around one bowl, provide paper pouches for guest to fill up and snack while socializing.

Libbie Summers, artistic director of her own lifestyle brand, “A Food-Inspired Life,” and Pappy & Company have partnered up again to bring you a series of recipes inspired by our  Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon Barrel-aged Pepper Sauce. Try this southern-style party snack, then check out the rest of Libbie’s delicious spicy summer soiree menu.
