These Cocktails Are Two More Reasons to be Excited for the Super Bowl

Less than a week remains until Super Bowl LII. It’s going down on February 4th between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots, and no matter who you’re rooting for, it’s more fun to cheer with something good to drink in your hand. Some of our mixologist friends have a suggestion or two when it comes to keeping glasses filled during next Sunday’s gridiron battle. Don your team colors, get your grub on with some indulgent snack fare, and raise a glass. Whether it’s to toast your team’s victory or console yourself over its crushing defeat, you’ll be glad to have some quality booze on hand.
