Food may be the highlight of any Super Bowl Party, but cocktails are definitely the runner-up. Try some of these Super Bowl-themed cocktails.

Tomorrow is one of the biggest celebrated football games in the world. The Super Bowl brings friends and families together for food, drinks, laughs, and sometimes tears depending on the outcome of the game.

It’s always stressful knowing you have to entertain a crowd. What food should you serve, what do people drink, etc. I have done the hard part for you.

I have created five themed cocktails for your Super Bowl guests. All you have to do is the shopping.

5. Jell-O Shots

It may not be a real cocktail, but what crowd doesn’t love Jell-O shots? They are fun, flavorful, and so simple to make.

You will need a few packages of Jell-O depending on how many shots you want to make. The flavor is your choice. However, I suggest keeping with the theme; try a flavor whose flavor is blue.

One package makes 20-30, depending on the size cup you use. I usually use condiment cups or medicine cups. Even bathroom cups would work.

Next, you will need the liquor. Again, this is your preference. You can use vodka, tequila, or rum. I usually go with a coconut rum.

You will combined 1 cup of boiling water, one cup of liquor, and one package of Jell-O. Whisk these well, until there aren’t any clumps.

Pour the liquid into your cups, and refrigerate until they are solid and then serve. Your guests will be sucking them back, you should probably make a few extra.

4. The Patriot

This drink is going to show your inner New England Patriot fan side. Even if you aren’t a fan, this red, white, and blue lemonade will keep you coming back for more.

The hardest part of making this drink is the layering. As long as you pour slow, you should have the layers perfect.

You will need lemonade, blue Curacao, strawberries, and vodka. You will mix the lemonade and vodka; one and a half ounces per one cup of lemonade. Next, you will mash your strawberries and add them to the bottom of the cup. Pour the lemonade mixture after. Lastly, pour about two tablespoons of blue Curacao to top off the drink.

I sometimes garnish the cup with a strawberry or a blueberry. Be sure to make extra of the lemonade and vodka mixture for refills. They will want another one!

3. The Hot-lanta

Here’s another drink to stick with our Super Bowl theme. I call this cocktail the Hot-lanta; it’s sweet with a bit of spice.

You will need Fireball or any spiced whiskey. You will also need Grenadine and Dr. Pepper.  I suggest This drink is great because, if you have any kids attending, you can make them a drink without the whiskey.

In a chilled glass or ice-filled, pour Dr. Pepper about three-quarters of the way. Next, add one and a half ounces of whiskey. Top of the glass with some Grenadine. Stir or shake and serve.

Sometimes I garnish with a few cherries. Either way, be warned, this drink has some bite.

2. The Angry Ram

A Bloody Mary is such  a great Sunday drink. The tomato juice leaves the drink tasting fresh, while the vodka and hot sauce keep you on your toes.

More from The Jet Press

Bloody Mary’s are a very traditional cocktail, but if you don’t know how to make them it’s very simple. Fill a glass with ice, and add two ounces of tomato juice. Next, add one and a half ounces of vodka, a teaspoon of Worcestershire, and three dashes of hot sauce.

It doesn’t end there. This where the wow factor comes in. You need to let your friends garnish their Bloody Mary. Create a garnish bar. Get creative and leave all sorts of random food items and a wooden skewer,

My personal creation will have a pickle spear, a mini hot dog, cheese cube and shrimp cocktail. Just skewer your favorite snacks and you have a masterpiece.

1. Flavored Beer

Beer is the most common drink when we think of the Super Bowl. However, beer is so simple. It won’t wow your crowd, it may make them happy, but it won’t wow them.

Now you can wow your friends with beer by flavor stacking. Yes, I said flavor stacking. You can add different flavors to your beer. Create a flavor station.

The best way to add flavors is through syrups. For example, if you have any leftover Grenadine from the previous drink, use that. You can also use the flavored soda syrup.
