NFL Inspired Cocktails: Green Bay Packers vs New Orleans Saints

…..The National Football League has returned after a breif hiatus in which we were fortunate to have not missed any regular season games. With the return of football comes the return of tailgating and there’s no better sport to tailgate than Football (I’m sure some “Futbol” fans would disagree). Our opening game is less than 24 hours away and should be nothing short of a great kickoff to the season with the defending Super Bowl champion Packers taking on their Super Bowl predecessors the New Orleans Saints. In honor of this kickoff game I present some Packer/Saints inspired tailgating recipes. Enjoy.

Packer Punch 2.0

1 Parts Apple Pucker
1 Parts Bacardi Cherry Rum
4 Parts Lemonade
Club Soda (Optional)

I created a Packer Punch last year for my NFL inspired cocktails, but have since created a second recipe thus the 2.0. As a Bears fan it almost pains me to make something this good for a team I hate but it goes with the territory. Combine all ingredients in a punch bowl and it’s ready to go. Feel free to add club soda for the “sparkling” effect.

Frozen Tundra Cocktail
(Midori Margarita)

1 oz Midori
1 1/2 oz Silver Tequila
1 oz Lime Juice
1/2 Simple Syrup
1 Cup of Ice

Add all your ingredients into a blender and blend to your desired consistency. Pour into a chilled glass and garnish with a slice of lime.

New Orleans Hurricane1 oz White rum
1 oz Jamaican dark rum
1 oz Bacardi 151 rum
3 oz Orange Juice
3 oz unsweetened pineapple juice
1/2 oz grenadine

Combine all ingredients and shake well. Pour into a hurricane glass and garnish with various fruit wedges.
