Ready to Drink Cocktails for The Super Bowl!
Game day rituals can be a way for fans to feel more connected to their team and to the game, and to also create a sense of community and belonging. One of our favorite game day rituals is to reach for a ready-to-drink cocktail. The ready-to-drink category is a fancy way of talking about pre-made cocktails and other alcoholic beverages that you can just grab and go. Think of it like buying a drink at a bar, but instead of having to wait for someone to mix it up for you, it's already made and ready to go in a can or bottle. It's perfect for people who want a quick and easy way to enjoy a drink without having to fuss with ingredients or mixers. There are many high-quality examples being produced today. Here are a few of our favorites:
Cutwater Grape Vodka Transfusion: Not just for days on the golf course. This refreshing RTD is made with vodka, ginger beer, and grape juice. It’s an excellent combination of spicy, sweet, and thirst quenching.
Talkhouse Encore Cranberry Vodka: This offering comes to us from the South Fork and is a certified classic combo in a can. Real cranberry fruit juice with vodka and a dash of bubbles. It’s been a long time since I’ve asked for a Cranberry Vodka, but this one keeps me coming back.
Volley Sharp Grapefruit Spiked Seltzer: Tequila and Grapefruit are a match made in heaven and this one delivers. This one is made with 100% agave tequila with sparkling water and real juice. This RTD isn’t sweet at all, it’s clean and crisp and totally refreshing.
Wandering Barman “Swipe Right” Old Fashioned: The folks at Wandering Barman in NYC are crafting some of the finest batched cocktails out there. The quality matches a crafted cocktail made at your local bar of choice. This one is their take on an old fashioned made with bourbon, dates, and aromatic orange bitters. It’s sure to warm you up on a cold day or after a tough playoff loss.
Tip Top Espresso Martini: Tip Top has taken the world by storm. Quite literally in fact, you can find their ready-to-drink cocktails on Delta flights. This one keeps the party going…it’s made with vodka, counterculture espresso, and vanilla. Shake it hard over ice and enjoy!
