For the Fan Who Gambled on the Game
Hedge your bets with a tall, skinny glass of dark lager beer and Chambord. (Bowl of peanuts optional.)
For the Fan Who Prefers the Half-Time Show
Cheer the entertainment with a combo of chilled fruit syrup and champagne, topped with fresh fruit. Raise a glass when Beyonce joins Coldplay on stage.
For the Fan Who Paints Their Face
This all-in fan is allowed to drink from plastic cups. Mix equal parts good-quality dark stout beer and chilled ginger ale or ginger beer. The result is incredibly drinkable, even through your face paint.
For the Fan Who Tracks All the Game Stats
You'll need just one of these to feel the excitement of the game. Pair chocolate stout and bourbon, then add vanilla and chocolate flavors, finishing with a drizzle of cream. Touchdown!
For the Fan Who Shhhs Everyone During Commercials
Aren't the ads good this year? Get through those four quarters in between with a mixed cocktail featuring bourbon, lemon juice, sparkling lemonade, and a quick DIY blackberry-rosemary syrup.
For the Fan Who's Hosting the Viewing Party
When it's your house on game day, a pitcher cocktail keeps things simple. Pick this made-for-winter Apple-Cinnamon Sangria, featuring dried fruits, vodka, and red wine...just keep over-eager fans away from the white couch.
For the Fan Who Dressed in a Team Jersey
It's been a long season -- tonight your team could be the champ! Be ready to celebrate with a mix of pale ale beer, unsweetened pineapple juice, and a sparkling dry white wine, such as Prosecco, for good measure.
For the Fan Who Yells "Touchdown!" Every Time Their Team Scores
You're all-in for the celebration, so don't peak too early (and there's no need to fill the belly with booze when there are chicken wings and brownies to nosh on). This sweet but not-too-sweet sangria is wonderfully refreshing and can combat the day's spicy eats.
For the Fan Who Tailgates. Always.
Starting the celebration well before kickoff? This a.m. beginner builds the base with salty hot-style vegetable juice and lager beer. Just add celery.
