How to Throw the Most Scandalous #TGIT Viewing Party

I don’t think anyone can deny the genius that is Shonda Rhimes. She blesses my television every Thursday night with powerful women. I know I’m not alone – her fanbase is huge. So why not host a viewing party? Don’t watch the craziness unfold alone – invite some friends over, have some snacks, and play a few games. Here are some suggestions on how to get the party started:


Snack & Drink: Red Wine and Popcorn Cones


Take a sip of your drink every time:

  • Olivia’s lip quivers
  • Someone says “Leader of the free world”
  • Someone mentions “Vermont” or “Standing in the Sun”
  • Someone says “mistress”
  • There is a press conference
  • Fitz & Liv say “Hi”
  • Olivia says “I’m Olivia Pope”
  • You hear the famous camera clicks

What to snack on: Popcorn cones are a fun way to enjoy your popcorn while watching scandal

Popcorn Cones

Popcorn cones-


  • Popped popcorn
  • Chocolate melts or Caramel Melts
  • Paper cones (cups will work just fine if you don’t have cones)


  1. Fill your cones with the popcorn
  2. Melt the chocolate or caramel or both!
  3. Drizzle your desired topping all over the popcorn in the cups and let it cool. Enjoy!

How To Get Away With Murder

Snack & Drink: Vodka and Blood Splattered Cookies


Take a sip of your drink every time:

  • Annalise drinks
  • Someone says “murder”
  • Annalise writes on the chalkboard
  • You see a dead body
  • There is a court scene
  • Someone calls Wes “Waitlist”
  • Nate appears
  • Michaela mentions getting married

Blood Splattered Cookies

Blood Splattered Cookies -Pinterest -1


  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups butter
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • White royal icing
  • Red food coloring


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 2 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then the vanilla.
  3. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients until just blended. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls and roll the balls in remaining 1/4 cup of sugar.
  4. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets and flatten slightly.
  5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned at the edges. Let the cookies cool completely
  6. Once the cookies have cooled completely ice the top of them with the white royal icing. Make sure you leave some icing on the side
  7. With the leftover icing add the red food coloring until you reach a red blood color.
  8. With a fork splatter the cookies with the red icing to look like blood on top.
