Beer-Hater’s Guide to Super Bowl Drinks

beer haters guide to superbowl drinks

Hattiesburg, MS

Football and beer usually go together like peanut butter and jelly. If you don’t like beer, you can still enjoy some libations while celebrating this year’s Super Bowl! If you are hosting a Super Bowl party at your home, here are some drink ideas that are great for people who don’t like beer or that want to try something adventurous. Lincoln Road Package Store has some great drink ideas for your guests, compliments of the Southern Living website. Everyone, except for the designated drivers, will enjoy the twists on these classic drinks.

Spiked Sweet Tea

Arnold Palmer’s are a popular drink with a half and half mix of sweet tea and lemonade. Why not change it up a little bit by swapping the traditional vodka mixer for your favorite bourbon. Make the mix ahead of time, skipping the ice and garnish. Store in the fridge until ready to serve. And don’t forget the fresh lemon slices!

If you think an Arnold Palmer is refreshing, wait until you try it with a twist by adding some fresh pineapple and sprigs of mint. Don’t like bourbon or want something different? Spiced rum works, too.

Try Some Tequila

Probably the most notable drink to mix tequila with is a classic margarita. Save your taste buds, and maybe a friendship or two, and skip the premixes. Instead, opt for a homemade mix using fresh ingredients. You can serve it on the rocks or give it a quick whiz in the blender for a frozen margarita.

Want to change it up a bit, but still taste the goodness of a traditional margarita? Try a margarita sunrise, which is a delicious combination of a margarita and a Tequila Sunrise.

Bourbon

Pair up some bourbon with ginger beer and ginger liqueur for a strong but sippable punch. It is best to go with actual ginger beer, not ginger ale, because it packs a bit of a spicy flavor.

Whether you are watching the game indoors or outside tailgating, the Tailgate Sipper blends pineapple juice, lemon juice, Southern Comfort, bourbon, lemon-flavored sparkling water, and a splash of vanilla extract. Another refreshing beverage to try that is suitable to sip inside or out at the tailgate.

Bloody Marys

Mixing up a large batch of Bloody Mary punch with a bottle of vodka on the side means that your guests can serve up their own drinks, and make them to suit their own taste buds. Some people prefer a strong drink, while others may want a weaker drink or no alcohol at all. Allowing your guests to serve their own drinks means you can spend less time playing bartender, and more time watching the game and interacting with your friends.

A Barbecue Bloody Mary can really spice things up when you add your favorite barbecue rub mix to a classic Bloody Mary. Some even prefer to garnish with a pork rind to really tie in the whole barbecue flavor.

Now that you’ve got some ideas for drinks that will please a crowd, grab some easy snacks and get ready for some football!
