Super Bowl Party Perfection: Elevate Your Drink Game and Wow Your Guests!
While beer is a traditional staple at Super Bowl parties, simply offering beer might not be enough to cater to the diverse taste preferences of your guests.
Some might prefer non-alcoholic beverages, while others may enjoy a good cocktail or a glass of wine. Moreover, creating a variety of drinks can add an element of surprise and excitement to your party, making it more memorable.
Unique and flavorful drinks can serve as a conversation starter among guests, enhancing the overall party atmosphere.
Finally, consider that people are increasingly seeking out new experiences, and a well-curated drink menu can significantly contribute to making your Super Bowl party a standout event.
6 crowd-favorite drink recipes that will surely be a hit at your Super Bowl party.
1. Margarita Pitcher
You can never go wrong with Margarita, especially when it’s served in a pitcher. It’s not only an easy drink to make, but it’s also refreshing and perfect for a day game like the Super Bowl. To make a pitcher of Margarita, you’ll need 2 cups of tequila, 1 cup of lime juice, 1 cup of orange juice, ½ cup of agave syrup, and ice. Mix everything in a pitcher and serve it chilled.
You can also offer Ranch Water

A sort of effervescent, less-sweet version of a margarita, only 3 ingredients are required for Ranch Water: tequila, lime juice, and seltzer. (Preferably Topo Chico; some claim it’s not a real Ranch Water without it!) We like adding a splash of orange liqueur like Cointreau for a little sweetness and citrus flavor too.
- 2 oz. silver tequila
- 2 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1/2 oz. orange liqueur (optional)
- Sparkling water (preferably Topo Chico)
If you’re looking for a drink that’s savory, spicy, and refreshing, then Michelada is the drink for you. It’s a perfect drink for people who love beer but want to add a twist to it.
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- Lime wedges
- 2 oz. fresh lime juice
- 2 tsp. hot sauce
- Dash of soy sauce
- 12 oz. light Mexican beer, such as Modelo or Tecate
- On a shallow plate, stir to combine salt and chili powder. Wet rim of large serving glass with lime wedge and dip into chili salt to coat rim.
- Combine lime juice, hot sauce, and soy sauce at the bottom of glass and stir to combine. Fill glass with ice, then top with beer. Stir lightly, garnish with a lime wedge and serve.
3. Jack Frost Winter Cocktail
Pineapple and coconut are definitely the hero flavors in this Jack Frost drink recipe, and if it wasn’t such a bright blue color, you’d easily confuse the taste for a Piña Colada. It’s basically a cocktail that’s gone on holiday on a tropical island.
The Jack Frost Winter Cocktail is one of those easy winter cocktails that looks really hard to pull off but couldn’t be simpler to do. All you need is vodka or rum, pineapple juice, Blue Curaçao, coconut cream, corn syrup, ice, a decent blender, and good friends to get festive with. And bonus is your favorite football team color is blue!
- 1 Oz SKYY Vodka or Wray and Nephew Overproof White Rum
- 1 Oz Blue Curaçao
- 2 Oz Pineapple juice
- 1 Oz Cream of coconut
- Light corn syrup and shredded coconut to rim the glass
01 Take two plates then pour some light corn syrup onto one, and sprinkle shredded coconut flakes onto the other
02 Dip the rim of your glass into first the corn syrup and then the coconut and set aside
03 Add ice to the blender along with vodka or rum, Blue Curaçao, pineapple juice and cream of coconut
04 Blitz until smooth and frosty
05 Pour the frozen mixture into your prepared glass, pop in a straw and serve
Sangria is a crowd favorite because it’s easy to make and it’s fruity. To make Sangria, you’ll need 1 bottle of red wine, 1 cup of orange juice, 1 cup of pineapple juice, ½ cup of brandy, 2 cups of sliced fruit, and ¼ cup of sugar. Mix everything in a pitcher and let it sit for a few hours before serving it chilled.
5. Beer Bar
If you’re not sure what drinks your guests will like, then set up a beer bar. Fill an ice bucket with different types of beer and add garnishes like lime or salt. This way, your guests can choose what they want to drink.
6. Wine Selection
Not to be overlooked, a selection of wines can add a touch of sophistication to your Super Bowl party. Offering a variety of red, white, and rosé wines caters to diverse palates and provides an alternative for guests who aren’t beer or cocktail enthusiasts.
Wine pairs well with a range of party foods.
- Serving up Pork Sliders – opt for an Old Vine Zinfandel
- Fried Chicken pairs with a Bubbly Brute
- Coconut Shrimp pairs well with a Sauvignon Blanc
Moreover, for health-conscious guests, wine can be a preferable choice due to its lower calorie content compared to most super bowl cocktail recipes.
