Super Sunday Cocktails and Beverages

05 Feb

I was trying to think of something to write about today on the blog, and since I had already covered the snacks that are great for the big game today, how about some good beverages to go with it? Of course, beer is the drink of choice for a lot of people watching the game, and everyone has their own preferences when it comes to beer. Personally, if I have a choice, I choose Guinness every time; but I also like Sam Adams, Dogfish Head, Speckled Hen, Bass Ale, Corona and Brooklyn Beer. I thought it might be good to offer up a couple of quick recipes for drinks that seem like good party drinks.

The first one is provided by Grey Goose Vodka, my personal vodka of choice. I love the way it tastes in a martini or just really cold by itself. Their website has some recipes, but this recipe they have is called the Big Blue, perfect to whip up for the Giants fans today.

Big Blue

1 ½ Parts GREY GOOSE Original
½ Parts Blue Curaçao
1 Part Lemon-Lime Soda
1 Part Sweet-and-Sour Mix
1 Part Cranberry Juice

Add all ingredients to tall glass filled with ice. Stir vigorously, and present with a fresh blackberry and slice of lemon.

It looks and sounds pretty tasty, if you have all the ingredients to whip up at home. The website has a few good recipes for Super Bowl using different liquors, including one that combines bourbon and one of my favorite beers, Speckled Hen. Check them out for a few other ideas of some good drinks. Another website, Hollywood Life, has a list of 22 different recipes designed specifically for the Giants-Patriots Super Bowl today, including several types of punches that would be good to use for parties. A third website,, has not only a great list of game day recipes, but just about any drink recipe you can think of for any occasion you might need.
I have some other drink recipes that I like to use, but they are drinks that probably aren’t the best for football parties. I do like a vodka martini, and I have a great Peach Sangria recipe that is great for the summertime, and I will certainly post some ideas as we get closer to St. Patrick’s Day with a Black and Tan and an Irish Coffee. For now, it’s just a short post today so everyone can get down to making your game time snacks, getting your jerseys and t-shirts on and getting to your parties. It will be back to normal recipes tomorrow as we start the week’s meal plan off. Remember, Sean picked all the recipes this week. He’s helping with the cooking and everything is a one pot meal this week (well, really two if you count the rice pot). Tomorrow is a Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry with white rice. It should be very tasty. Have fun today, and Go Giants!
