Let’s toast to…SUPERBOWL DRINKS

 

 

Since my team didn’t make it to the BIG GAME (I’m a GIANTS fan) I won’t be watching as much as I’ll be drinking! LOL!!! And if you’re like me, you’ll either be at home or at someone else’s house “Superbowlin.” In my book, it doesn’t matter where I go……..COCKTAILS are NECESSARY: And this year, I was inspired by the COLORS of the teams (plus I LOVE vodka and tequila) so I came up with TWO great drinks in honor of The Baltimore Ravens and The San Francisco 49’ers: I’m calling them>

THE RAVEN and THE 49’er!!!
(And they are so EASY to make you won’t BELIEVE it!)

First> THE RAVEN!

All you need is VODKA, LEMONADE, GRAPE JUICE, and GINGER ALE!
(To duplicate the 16oz jar above)

1. ADD ICE TO SHAKER.
(Do Not fill shaker with ice…Otherwise HOW will your ingredients mix?)

2. ADD EQUAL PARTS (4 ounces each) of VODKA, LEMONADE, and GRAPE JUICE. DO NOT ADD the GINGER ALE YET!
(You don’t have to splurge on vodka, but do buy grape JUICE not grape drink! And store brought lemonade is fine.)

3. SHAKE INGREDIENTS.
(Give it a good shake too. Good shaking gives your mixture a nice blend.)

4. POUR INGREDIENTS FROM SHAKER INTO YOUR 16oz JAR or GLASS: INCLUDING THE ICE.
(Leave a little room though for a splash of Ginger Ale.)

5. ADD A SPLASH OF GINGER ALE.
(Enjoy!)

AND NOW> THE 49’er!

ALL you need is TEQUILA, PINEAPPLE JUICE, and GRENADINE!
(To duplicate the 160z jar above)

1. ADD ICE TO SHAKER.
(Do not fill shaker with ice…Otherwise HOW will your ingredients mix?)

2. ADD 2oz. of TEQUILA and 8oz of PINEAPPLE JUICE.
(I prefer Silver over Gold Tequila, but go for the gold if you dare!)

3. SHAKE INGREDIENTS.
(Give this a GREAT shake. Tequila can be slightly harsher, so you want to make sure it’s mixed properly.)

4. POUR ALL THE INGREDIENTS INTO YOUR 16oz JAR or GLASS: INCLUDING THE ICE.
(You will be tempted to take a sip at this point, but WAIT…there’s more!)

5. SLOWLY ADD A TABLESPOON of GRENADINE (right on top of the drink) AND IT WILL DROP TO THE BOTTOM.
(If you don’t have grenadine, you can use the syrup from an inexpensive jar of marcaschino cherries…ENJOY!)

FYI: For your designated driver> You can also do BOTH of these cocktails WITHOUT alcohol: Just remove the Vodka and the Tequila and you still have a GREAT “Mock-tail!”

CHEERS!
