We’ve partnered with NASCAR®, Darlington Raceway, and Dixie Vodka to bring the Darlington race day experience home. Built for the ultimate super fan and collector, our box features exclusive, limited edition, individually numbered Darlington Raceway-licensed items, sweet and savory Southern snacks, and ingredients to make a signature, South Carolina-inspired cocktail.
This limited-time offer is only available until race day, so step on it! Only 1,000 are available. So get on it while the gettin's good!
Limited Edition Collectibles
One of our two limited edition, individually numbered collectible sets in this box, these coasters are great for race day, or, really, any day! Made with very supple, water-resistant synthetic leather, they’ll look great whether they’re preventing your signature race day cocktail from leaving rings on the furniture or on display in the matching holder. Share them with your race day buds or keep the whole set as a fun and functional Darlington keepsake.
The second of our limited edition, individually numbered collectible sets included in our race day box, these mugs are seriously stunning. Crafted from glass and decorated with a one-of-a-kind ceramic print that’s heat fired into the glass, these are a really beautifully-designed keepsake. They’re perfect on race day for imbibing your favorite sip-able refreshments (such as our sweet tea cocktail) or as a decorative Darlington memento.
Listen, sometimes things get messy when it comes to food, and using any old napkin just won’t do when you’re hosting on race day. Your food spread is going to look extra-pro with these commemorative Darlington napkins. So get a little saucy and clean up in style! Or frame them as a memento…we won’t question it.
Locally Sourced Goodies
If you're familiar with South Carolina Lowcountry life, then you probably know that Benne Wafers are a cultural staple. The main ingredient, sesame, is a Colonial-era crop planted heavily in the South Carolina sea islands and has a milky, buttery flavor. But once toasted, the sesame's flavor evolves into an almondy-peanutty taste that is just too good to resist (and, honestly, gives a hint of Cap'n Crunch, which takes us back).
We chose this brand, which has been selling wafers since 1940, because their recipe dates back well over 100 years and is said to be the only existing original Benne Wafer recipe. Ah-mazing.
Historically, cheese straws came about in the mid 1800s as a way of preserving cheese in the hot and humid South. But they really became a "thing" in the 1950s and early 1960s with the rise in popularity of puff pastries and other canapés as hors d'oeuvres. And today they remain a popular South Carolina offering at parties, house warmings, and cocktail get-togethers. We had to include these because not only are they regionally popular, but they're also just downright delicious—they're the right amount of cheesy indulgence with a snappy crunch that makes it hard to eat just one...or, well....anything less than the whole pack.
These irresistible golden pecans are roasted with a maple syrup, brown sugar, and a pinch of salt for the perfect balance of sweet 'n' salt. And while the praline-ization of nuts is something you'll find all around the South, we chose these praline pecans because they're made less than 8 miles from the raceway! We're nuts about this salty-sweet treat, and we know you will be too!
We first discovered this new, emerging brand at the local Lowcountry gas station, and we immediately fell in love. It's kind of mind blowing just how much these babies taste like spicy pimento cheese. And pimento cheese is maybe the most popular dip in South Carolina, if not the entire South. Everyone loves it, us included. So nice the company is a local start-up (we love supporting small and local businesses) and makes legit quality chips, we had to include them. Bonus points for just how packed full of chips each bag is and for how luxurious the actual bag itself is. (You'll get it when you see it!)
Sweet Tea Signature Cocktail
You can’t make sweet tea (or sweet tea vodka for that matter) without the sweet! So we’ve included two tasty sweetened syrups for you, courtesy of the mixology experts at Muddling Memories. We’ve included a quintessentially southern praline flavor in addition to classic mint. You can’t go wrong with either one of ‘em, but we love sweetening our tea with both! We recommend brewing your tea with a small amount of your flavor(s) of choice, and adding more to taste as needed.
Because you need straws. So we made ‘em NASCAR-themed!
We are thrilled to include in our cocktail recipe Dixie Vodka, the official vodka of NASCAR®. Dixie Vodka is a hometown hero, hailing from South Carolina, and is known as “The South’s Best Tasting Vodka,” having racked up a slew of awards. For our signature cocktail, we recommend trying it with Dixie’s flagship flavor, Southern, which represents the best of Southern flavor. And if you’re a fan of Arnold Palmers, we’ve included Dixie’s Citrus vodka, which adds the flavors of lemon, lime, and orange.
*SPECIAL OFFER: Get both (750ml) bottles for just $40!
Sweet tea vodka certainly isn’t complete without, well, tea. So we encourage you to use any black tea of your choice for this! Or whatever you have in your pantry. For the best flavor, we recommend brewing loose leaf tea with the simple syrup to a sweetness level of your liking.
