If you’re spending the Super Bowl weekend in Las Vegas and have an affinity for punny cocktails, head to The Race and Sports Book at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The folks there have come up with a series of cleverly named cocktails that can be yours for the asking, all weekend long:
The Eagles Have Landed Have a blitz with Patron Silver, Grapefruit, Ginger, and a set of Wings (Yellow Red Bull.)
Brady’s Bunch Grab life by the face-mask and do a touchdown dance with this updated Old-Fashioned of Patron Anejo Tequila, Jameson Irish Whiskey, Ancho Chile & Bitter Liqueurs & spiced syrup.
Automatic First & Down… the Hatch Foul play with Jameson Irish Whiskey, Bitter, Cardamom, Lime & Ginger Beer
Hail Mary Make a touchdown with Absolut Vodka, Chipotle, Citrus, Mezcal & Bloody Mary Mix.
I Only Watch For the Commercials Oh, and the half-time show. Huddle up with Absolut Elyx Vodka, Bergamot Citrus, lemongrass, & Cucumber Soda.
I asked for a recipe (for those of you at home), and they provided the following, also pictured above. Don’t blame me if you’re rooting for the Eagles!
1 oz. Patron Anejo Tequila
1 oz. Jameson Irish Whiskey
.25 oz. Ancho Chile Liqueur
.25 oz. Bitter Liqueur
.25 oz. Spiced Syrup
Place a block of ice into an Old Fashioned glass, and set aside. Combine all of your ingredients in a separate mixing glass filled with ice. Stir and strain into Old Fashioned glass.
