Only four teams remain in the National Football League Playoffs, which airs this Sunday, January 24, 2016. AFC heavyweights the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos face off at 3:05 p.m., while the Arizona Cardinals take on the top-seeded Carolina Panthers in the NFC matchup at 6:40 p.m. Even if you’re not invested in these teams — I’m still lamenting over my Jets’ heartbreaking loss to our upstate rivals three weeks ago — there are plenty of reasons to clink glasses.
Case in point: these delicious drinks, courtesy of our friends at Sparkling ICE, are each named for a team in the playoffs and can be whipped up using just five ingredients or fewer. They’re so yummy, they’ll convert you into a fan in no time. Click through for each recipe, which features both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options.
This berry-sweet drink pays homage to Carolina blue. Mrowl!
Add rum to kick this drink up a notch.
Can you picture Peyton singing the praises of this citrus sipper as part of a future Nationwide promotion? “Boy, this cock-tail tastes so good…”
Fans of America’s team — the one that actually made the playoffs, anyway (sorry, Dallas) — ought to enjoy this patriotic punch.
