Super Bowl Sunday Funday Cocktails

Super Bowl Sunday Funday

 

Looking for fun cocktails to serve your guests or to share a Sunday Funday with your special someone for the Super Bowl today?  Try these two Denver and Seattle-inspired Super Bowl cocktails.

 

Mile High Margar

6 oz. Coors Light

6 oz. Pre-mixed Tequila based Margarita Mix

Lime Garnish

Salt Rim

 

Get the top of a large glass wet then circle in salt to create a salted rim. Pour 6 oz. of Coors Light and 6 oz. of tequila based pre-mixed margarita mix into a large glass. Add a lime garnish to edge of glass and enjoy!

 

 

Seattle Sunday

A twist on what Seattle is great at making – coffee.

2 oz. Frangelico

4 oz. Seattle’s Best Coffee

1-2 oz. Bailey’s Coffee Creamers (choose your favorite flavor)

 

Pour 2 oz. of Frangelico into coffee mug and add 4 oz. of Seattle’s Best Coffee. Choose your favorite flavor of Bailey’s Coffee Creamers (Original or Coffee Almond Cream recommended) and add 1-2oz. to mug. Sip & enjoy!

 

The little nugget known as Puxetony Phil saw his shadow today so we have six more weeks of winter coming our way. Hopefully the Mile High Margar and the Seattle Sunday cocktail can make you think of summer and/or stay warm, respectively.

Super Bowl Monday should most definitely be a National Holiday.

Cheers!

Polar Vortex in a Glass

The Polar Vortex is in full force. You know the saying, if you can’t beat them; join them.  Instead of fighting the Polar Vortex, put it in a glass. It’s basically a White Russian with a little something extra.

2 oz. Vodka

1 oz. Coffee Liqueur

Light Cream

Whipped Cream

Chocolate Shavings

 

 

Fill a highball glass with ice cubes and pour the 2oz. vodka and 1 oz. coffee liqueur into the glass. Fill the remaining of the glass with light cream.  Top with whipped cream and add chocolate shavings (or substitute for chocolate sprinkles or cocoa powder).  Enjoy!

Optional: Drink next to a hottie while bundled up in front of a fire. It’s the best way to fight the polar vortex.

 

Olympic Rings Cocktail

5 Life Savers

1 ½ ounce Three Olives Loopy Vodka

4 oz. Sprite

Ready for the Olympics? Start the games off right by filling a martini glass with Life Savers of Olypmic colors (Red, Blue, Yellow, & Green…sorry friends, the Black Lifesaver doesn’t exist unfortunately).  Add 1 ½ ounces of Three Olives Loopy Vodka and 4 oz. Sprite into the martini glass.
