September 19: Talk Like a Pirate Day

Ahoy mateys! Keep your grog cool and your grub a'plenty with a DIY Pirate Chest Cooler.
By Jackie Fo

On this sacred day, say “Arr, me hearty” and “Yo-Ho-Ho” until your heart’s content. No one will think twice!

Grab your mateys and start swashbucklin' – prepare the deck with a quick DIY project and some seaworthy pirate recipes!

1) DIY Boozy Pirate Chest (a.k.a. Davy Jones’ Locker)

A proper pirate celebration needs booze, and the booze needs to be cold. Can’t give out warm drinks on the high seas! Create a treasure chest drink cooler by using a wooden chest from a craft store. The directions are simple!

Paint the chest a dark brown color using regular paint or spray paint. Let it dry and then adorn with stickers. Spell out “ARRR!” and add some Jolly Roger (skull and crossbones) flair. In the body of the chest, put a plastic storage container and fill it with ice.

Stuff the container with a bottle of rum (“yo-ho-ho!”), jelly shots and other party drinks fit for a pirate ship.

2) Grog and Doubloons

Don’t forget to include our delightfully boozy Dirty Pirate Pops in your boozy treasure chest for a poptail surprise or our Gold Jelly Shots for a treasure-worthy treat!

3) Grub

Serve up a seaworthy meal with Pillsbury’s Sea Monster Sandwich!

4) Booty

For dessert, serve up a smorgasbord of themed cakes and cupcakes with our Pirate Cake and Pirate Cupcakes!

Don’t forget yer eye patch and bandana, throw a Pirate Pop in yer hand and talk like a pirate!


Here's more booty for yer mates!
