Soon after announcing her dream partnership with Williams Sonoma, country music star and culinary artist Trisha Yearwood has released the details of another food and drink venture. This summer, Yearwood will be working with 7UP for a promotion that will include featuring her on the brand’s packaging, along with food recipes that will consist of the soda as an ingredient.
In releasing the details of her relationship with 7UP, Yearwood explained to Variety how she would incorporate the carbonated lemon lime-flavored drink into her foods.
I use it probably more in recipes than I do drinking it by itself. It’s basically summer things like glazes that you make for skewers that you’re going to put on the grill, or how you add 7-UP to different kinds of drink mixes.
Don’t let Yearwood fool you though; she also likes to drink the beverage — sometimes with a little additional kick. In fact, there is one particular 7UP box-side recipe that has become a fruity drink favorite of hers and her friend.
Yearwood is no stranger to the kitchen, creating a second career for herself using her culinary skills many years ago. In 2008, her first cookbook was released, helping her become known for her southern-inspired recipes when she shared her family’s favorites with her fans. A second book followed with the help of her mother and sister, once again. This time she not only used ideas from her family tree, but also paid homage to her husband Garth Brooks.
Despite mixed reviews about her cookbooks, Yearwood pursued her second dream profession in cooking. In 2012, her Food Network show Trisha’s Southern Kitchen premiered. The Emmy Award winning show remains on the channel’s schedule to date and oftentimes includes some of Yearwood’s famous friends as her sioux chefs in her home kitchen.
Most recently, Yearwood announced her food merchandise line with Williams Sonoma, helping another culinary dream of the GRAMMY Award winning artist come true.
