Super Bowl Cocktail Showdown

THE G.O.A.T V. FLY EAGLE

Recipes below!

No matter how you party on game day, we wanted to share a couple recipes that are easy to make and even better to drink. As we created these recipes, we realized it was a showdown in the drink department so we decided to have some fun! So who’s going to win on Sunday? For good measure, we'll be rooting for both teams and making both of these cocktails to show our support.


THE G.O.A.T

Super Bowl Cocktail Showdown

In honor of Tom Brady, we have named this cocktail “The G.O.A.T” or Greatest Of All Time. Only time will tell if Tom will earn that title, but you can have the greatest cocktail of all time this Sunday. For this cocktail, we used AZ Distilling's Commerce Gin. Maybe Brady needs the luck of the Five C's which makes this Gin special.

We wanted to include Cynar, not only because it's an artichoke bitter liqueur that starts with the letter "A" but also because it is an Italian amaro known to settle the stomach after a big meal. We all know you'll be partaking in chicken wings and nachos so this cocktail will help keep the party going.

Add a little bit of OJ and of course, our Lime Leaf Tonic, and you'll have the Greatest Of All Time cocktail to cheer on your team.

HERE'S THE RECIPE:

  • 2oz of Gin → G
  • 1oz fresh Orange Juice → O
  • .25oz Artichoke Amaro, Cynar → A
  • .75oz Lime Leaf Tonic → T

Combine with ice, shake fine strain into a chilled rocks glass with no ice, garnish with an orange peel. Shape it like a football if you’re feeling extra.

Wanna batch it out to make some for everyone? Here's the recipe expanded out:  Makes about 16 drinks

  • One Liter of Gin
  • 16oz fresh Orange Juice
  • 4oz Artichoke Bitters
  • 12oz Lime Leaf Tonic

Combine in a large pitcher or punch bowl. Serve with ice on the side.

 


FLY EAGLE

The Eagles take flight this Sunday for the final time this year. To celebrate winning the NFC and for making it to the Super Bowl we’ve created the “Fly Eagle”. Inspired by the classic Aviation cocktail and the Eagles’ fight song, Fly Eagles, Fly, this drink is designed to help you soar high while you watch them take on the Patriots.

For this cocktail, we used Hashtag Vodkadistilled by Arizona company, O.H.S.O. (We can't help but make sure AZ is represented on game day.) Paired with Luxardo Maraschino liqueur and Iconic's Meyer Lemon Balm,this cocktail is reminiscent of the Aviation but with a sweet, citrusy twist.
