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.
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.
