Thirsty Thursday: 4 Super Bowl-Inspired Cocktails

Super Bowl Cocktail recipes

From left to right: The Brady Bomb, The Manning Special, The Gronk and The Big Blue (in the tall martini glass).

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too.

Last week we shared a recipe for a A Beer and a Ball; this week we’re teaming up with Wine Director Anjoleena Griffin-Holst of the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa to get you ready for the Super Bowl with not one, two or three… but four new drink recipes inspired by Sunday’s showdown.

Starting with a variation on the classic Manhattan cocktail, a blueberry garnish and splash of vermouth help round off The Big Blue, an ode to the Giants franchise and their decorated history. Or opt for The Manning Special instead, inspired by the Giant’s quarterback and his cool, calm and collected demeanor. If you’re rooting for the Patriots, try The Brady Bomb, an explosive and game-changing cocktail made with cherry vodka, Red Bull energy drink and grenadine syrup, or go for The Gronk, named after their prolific tight end and towering with tequila, white creme de cacao, blue curacao and cream.

So make your picks and pour your drinks. It’ll be hard to go wrong with these tasty sips — especially if you give in and go for all four. Bottoms up, folks.
