It’s this weekend – the “Big Game!” We are hosting friends to watch the biggest game of the year and I will be making some of my most favorite football foods including my Sriracha Wings (by request from the friends), Patatas Bravas con Bacon (Spicy Potatoes with Bacon), Sriracha Chicken Dip and maybe some Beef Enchilada Tacos. In addition to the perfect game time food, I also plan to serve specialty cocktails to celebrate each team. Earlier this week I shared my Seahawks Stack. Today, it’s New England Patriots Themed Cocktails – The Patriots Pass.
The New England Patriots team colors are all-american, red, white and blue. Today’s cocktail celebrates this popular East Coast team with a variation of their team colors in the form of a cocktail I like to call, The Patriots Pass.
The Patriots Pass is a combination of pomegranate liqueur, vodka and Sprite which is served over fresh pomegranate seeds and whole blueberries. Now, truthfully this drink is more on the red-side but it is definitely delicious. It tastes similar to a Shirley Temple but is definitely an adult-style cocktail.
To begin, pour 1 ounce of pomegranate liqueur and 2 ounces of vodka over crushed ice in a tall Collins glass. Top the ice with a handful of pomegranate seeds and blueberries. You then want to top the drink with Sprite until the reaches the top of the glass. Add a red-striped straw and you are ready to go. Easy, easy!
if you want to make your drink a bit more on the blue side you could always muddle the blueberries into the bottom of the glass or you could also add some blackberries to the drink to make it appear less on the red side.
I don’t know about you but I definitely know who I am rooting for tomorrow. Have a great time watching the game, enjoy the commercials and most of all – each lots of yummy food.
The Seattle Seahawks team colors are bright green and navy. Today’s cocktail celebrates this popular West Coast team with a variation of their team colors in the form of a cocktail, the Seahawks Stack
The Seahawks Stack is a combination of vodka, blue curaçao, melon liquor and sour mix. The “stack” part comes in with a little layering technique to float one color liquor on top of the other.
I hope you enjoy my New England Patriots Themed Cocktails. Game on!
