Super Bowl Sunday is upon us and, as always, I am looking for cocktail & appetizer ideas for a party. While I could care less who wins this year (if the Pats aren’t in it, I’m not interested), I still love to gather ‘round the tube with friends and enjoy a few tasty tipples and yummy treats.
Most people opt for beer when watching sporting events, but for a party you want to make sure there’s something for everyone—even the picky non-beer drinkers (ahem…like me). Here are a few cocktails that should please just about everyone watching the game and go great with nachos, pigs in a blanket, and chili (but then again, what doesn’t?). Enjoy!
1 1/2 parts Vanilla flavored vodka
1 part Hiram Walker Butterscotch Schnapps
5 parts cola or root beer
Serve over ice in a tall glass.
1 part Beefeater Gin
1 part Hiram Walker Gingerbread Liqueur
1/2 part Fresh Sour Mix
Unfiltered Apple Juice or Cider
Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a cinnamon sugar rim and a lemon corkscrew.
Russian Root Beer:
1 part Vanilla flavored vodka
1 part Kahlua
1 part Hiram Walker Root Beer Schnapps
Serve over ice in rocks glass.
