I've spent a lot of time in front of the Sunday tube watching football for 30+ years. Way back when.... if my "date" would provide me with pizza and a bottle of Champagne I was more than happy to watch "the game". Much has changed. My cocktails requirements have gotten a little more sophisticated and so has my knowledge of the game.
Here are my two favorite cocktails to serve at Jack and Jill football gatherings. These are very adult beverages and very delicious. ***Always drink responsibly.
"Hail Mary Martini"(shaken not stirred)
Shake with ice:
2 parts Pear infused Vodka
1 part St. Germaine - Elderflower flavored French liqueur
Pour into classic chilled martini glass
Squeeze a lemon or lime wedge
Top with Prosecco
Best tasting and refreshing adult beverage you may ever drink!
"Dark and Stormy"
3.5 oz of Gingerbeer
2 oz Dark Rum
Couple dashes of bitters
In a highball glass filled with ice, add dark rum and top with ginger beer. Garnish with lime wedge.
Make sure you're still cheering for the right team after one of these!
