Cocktails for Super Bowl LI
January 24, 2017
It's finally determined: Super Bowl LI will be played between the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots. If you're planning on throwing a Super Bowl party, or just want to have something to sip on while you watch the game, these themed cocktails are perfect!
Georgia’s known for their peaches, but will they be known as Super Bowl champs as well?
2 oz peach schnapps
1 oz vodka
4 oz lemonade
Combine in cocktail shaker with crushed ice. Strain into glass.
No worries if you spill any of this on your Falcons jersey, the color matches perfectly.
1.5 oz Brazilian rum
3 diced strawberries
1 tsp agave nectar (or other sweetener of your choice)
2 dashes of ground cinnamon
Muddle the strawberries with the agave nectar and cinnamon in a shaker. Add ice and rum. Shake well and strain into a large rocks glass.
This cocktail is the perfect blue color for Patriot pride and brings some bright flavors to the party.
2 oz blue curaco
4 oz rum
Combine everything in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain over ice in a chilled highball glass.
Taking a classic like whiskey sour and making it even better… what more could fans ask for?
1 apple, peeled, muddled, and strained for the juice
4 oz of bourbon
Juice from 1 lemon
1.5 tsp maple syrup
2 egg whites*
Dash of cinnamon
Muddle apple in mixer, then strain the juice and discard apple pieces. (You can skip this and just muddle the apples, but the pieces are often hard to get out of the shaker.) Combine apple juice, bourbon, lemon juice, maple syrup, egg whites, and cinnamon in a shaker. Top with ice and shake for 30 seconds. Strain into two glasses with 2 ice cubes each.
*Traditional whiskey sours contain egg whites. If you wish to omit this, that is perfectly okay!
Whatever team you're cheering for, these drinks are sure to make your gameday a good one!
