Got your jerseys ready? Already have your menu (wings vs. burgers, nachos vs. chips and dip) planned out?
Because it's time for Super Bowl Sunday, one of the biggest sporting events of the year and one of the best days to host a party! This football season-ender brings friends, family, and fans together for food, fun, and most importantly: drinks.
For many Americans, Super Bowl Sunday is not complete without a beer in hand, but what if you want to switch things up a bit? Some say the game is won or lost on the field, but we're here to show that winners are also decided at the bar.
So what makes the ideal Super Bowl cocktail? One, it should be easy to make in a big batch. You don't want to be stuck stirring drinks to order.
Two, it should be boozy enough to keep things interesting throughout the game, but also light enough to not leave you with a hangover after the final whistle blows. Or maybe you want a drink that feels like you just got tackled — we aren't here to judge!
Finally, drinks should be easy to down quickly, whether it's to celebrate a touchdown or drown your sorrows when the other team gets one.
So here are our top six favorite Super Bowl cocktails, complete with appetizer pairings, to get you ready for game day!
