Football cocktail recipes for game day
What type of fan are you? From the super fans to the coach friend to the casual viewer, we have a football cocktail recipe for everyone at the game day watch party.
There are still plenty of Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays left before the Super Bowl to cheer on your favorite football team – or pick a new one to root for! When hosting a watch party, you need to prepare for all the types of football fans out there. From die-hard devotees to Sunday Funday socializers, not all fans are created equal, so we’re sharing our list of top cocktails for every type of game day guest.
The super fan: paloma
Perfect for the fan who knows every player, position and stat about their beloved team, the paloma is a tried and true cocktail – no-frills and loyal to a fault. You always know you’re going to get the same refreshing taste no matter who makes it.
The bandwagon fan: mojito
A mojito cocktail is the perfect go-to for those who find themselves a bit indecisive. For the fan who switches their loyalty to a team every week, this has all the elements of a game winning drink – sweet, sour, fizzy and fresh.
The “coach” fan: mule
Mule cocktails, made with ginger beer, indicate a spicy personality. This fan will spend all four quarters calling plays, critiquing drives and slandering the front office. The only thing they're missing is a clipboard and a headset.
The “hustler” fan: spicy margarita
A margarita with a touch of heat can turn any watch party up in an instant. Like a spicy marg, this fan always brings a bit of sass and spice wherever they go, challenging the most gullible in the room to a challenge they know they can’t lose.
The ‘yay, go sports’ fan: gin & tonic
For the fan who is just there for the snacks and vibes, a G+T keeps things simple and pleasant.
