Who are you rooting for on Sunday during the Super Bowl, the Seattle Seahawks or the New England Patriots? If your team is the Seattle Seahawks you are going to want to serve up some Seattle Seahawks themed cocktails to you guests.
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 liqueur and sour mix. The “stack” part comes in with a little layering technique to float one color liqueur on top of the other.
To create the stack (or layering) you want to start with the heaviest liqueur on the bottom (or the liquor with the highest amount of sugar) and layer (or float) the lighter liqueurs on top using a spoon.
For the Seahawks Stack I began with 2 ounces of blue Curacao and 2 ounces of sour mix mixed together. I poured the first layer into a glass. I then placed the back of a bar spoon or a tablespoon against the inside of the glass so that the tip is directly resting just above the first layer. I then slowly poured the melon liqueur and vodka (which was also been combined and is the lower-density layer) over the back of the spoon so that it sits atop the first layer. Within minutes you have the Seahawks Stack or the perfect Seattle Seahawks themed cocktail.
Not feeling so adventurous? That’s ok. You can still rock the Seahawks colors with blue and green cocktails.
I prepared a green cocktail by combining 2 ounces of melon liqueur, 1 ounce of vodka and 2 ounces of sour mix. The 3 ingredients are combined in a cocktail shaker and served over ice.
For the blue cocktail I used the same “recipe,” 2 ounces of blue Curaçao, 1 ounce of vodka and 2 ounces of sour mix shaken and served over ice.
Seattle Seahawks themed cocktails are a fun way to bring that Super Bowl party spirit into every aspect of your party, including the drinks! If you are cheering for Seattle, root your favorite team on with the Seahawks Stack.
