12 Classic Cocktails for your Super Bowl Party


Nothing quite says a Super Bowl party like friends, good food and classic cocktails (and a kickin' game).  There is a little something for everyone, no matter what your poison.  To tell the truth, we aren't sports fans.  I love a good game watched live, but the TV takes the magic out of it for me.  EXCEPT for the Super Bowl.  It's like Black Friday shopping, but for football.

OK, so only a woman could bring shopping into a football conversation.  So, back to the party.  Good friends (check!), good food (check!), classic cocktails...  Let's take a look.

Looking for a good tequila cocktail?  Check out the Classic Frozen Margarita, El Dorado Cocktail or a Tequila Sunrise.  If vodka is your choice take a look at the Cosmopolitan, White Russian, Black Russian or Sex on the Beach.  Is rum what you are looking for?  Try a Pina Colada or Strawberry Daquiri!

Chad and I will be watching the game, kicking back with our best eats and favorite cocktails.  Buffalo Chicken Meatball Poppers, The Best Ever! Tex-Mex Chicken Fajitas, BBQ Chicken Nachos and a savory popcorn treat will be on our menu.  Are you still working on yours?  Make sure to check out our Super Bowl Party Roundup for finger foods, sandwiches, dips & salsas, and sweet treats for your Super Bowl Party.

Looking to change up the classics a little?  Try this Simple El Dorado Cocktail.  With only 2 ingredients, this cocktail is a no brainer for your party!

4 ounces Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila
4 ounces fresh squeezed lemon juice

  1. Love all these, Donna--- the only way anyone is going to get me to watch sports, on tv or otherwise, is if they offer me a good cocktail, and any of these would do splendidly! I posted an interesting one on my blog today too :)
