After winning the NFC Championship game, Philadelphians showed us all how they like to party. During tonight’s big game, we shouldn’t expect any less partying as we cheer on the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII.

In making sure everything runs smoothly, here are a few Philadelphia themed cocktails for your party. As fans of the New York Jets, nothing would make us happier than seeing the Evil Empire, I mean, the New England Patriots, losing the big game. Here are some Eagles-themed cocktails so when that moment happens, you’ll be happy while feeling nice!

Wentz Mint Julep

This is a classic. A refreshing cocktail typically made with bourbon, however, since according to the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey Old Number 7 is a top selling brand of whiskey, we should use old reliable for the cocktail.

Here’s what you need:

Jack Daniels

Simple Syrup

Fresh Mint

Orange Bitters (optional)

This one requires a little effort because it entails light muddling the mint to release its oils. Carson Wentz did all the hard work to get the Eagles to the postseason and so we have to invite him to the party. After the mint, add syrup, Jack, pack with ice. Then stir lightly until glass is cold. A dash of orange bitters adds intrigue. Enjoy!

Spicy Ajayi Pineapple Margarita

Sticking with the classics and what’s effective. A personal favorite here as I find the sweet and spiciness is often an irresistible combination. Besides after the first one, there is no stopping this party.

Here’s what you need:

Jalapeno or Habanero infused Tequila or Mezcal

Simple Syrup

Lime

Splash of pineapple juice

Shake all ingredients with ice, pour in a rocks glass over ice, add a splash of pineapple juice. Warning! The spicy Jay Ajayi may make you feel like you can go all night.

Smoked Cherry Blount Daiquiri

This is a deceptive cocktail as drinkers often underestimate its strength because of its sweetness. By the third round, you’ll certainly find yourself in LeGarrette Blount mode hurdling and bursting through holes that all of a sudden opened up.

Here’s what you need:

Rum

Simple Syrup

Lime

Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur

Shake ingredients hard over ice, strain into glass and enjoy. Garnish is optional, as there are plenty of Coronas that need the lime more.

Fireballs Foles

We’re talking cinnamon whiskey, everybody. Fireball whiskey is a sure-fire way to get things jumping, quickly. It makes you stronger, faster, sharper, more conversational, more social and definitely less awkward. Chased with an ice-cold cider, you’ll definitely feel as if you’re on stage standing beside Nick Foles in front of a microphone.

Here’s what you need:

Fireball Whiskey

Cider

Enjoy the game and please mix responsibly.
