Super Bowl LV Cocktails: Tasty Recipes For Your Game Day Party – Hollywood Life

30+ Super Bowl Cocktails To Enjoy During The Game Even If You’re Just Watching For The Commercials

If you’re backing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or cheering on the Kansas City Chiefs – or just waiting for The Weeknd to perform – here are some Super Bowl cocktail recipes to make your game day the best.

Reading Time: 13 minutes

After an NFL season that saw games played in empty stadiums, Tom Brady not wearing a New England Patriots uniform for the first time in his life, and possibly Drew Brees’ last game, it all comes down to Super Bowl LV. For the first time in Super Bowl history, the game will be played at a participating team’s home stadium – so that deserves a drink! Thankfully, we have more than thirty cocktail recipes for your party. So, as millions prepare to watch the game from home (since COVID restrictions will only allow 22,000 fans in Raymond James Stadium), figure out which one of the tasty recipes below will make your night truly super.

Even if you’re not a huge football fan, the 2021 Super Bowl will offer something for you. First off, Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan will since the “Star-Spangled Banner,” hopefully delivering a performance worth to be added to this list of all-time greatest national anthem performances – EVER! If that wasn’t enough, H.E.R. will perform “America The Beautiful.” After the second quarter finishes, get ready for what might be one of the most outrageous Halftime Shows in history, as The Weeknd will take the stage – or will he? With reports that the “Blinding Lights” performer will take advantage of the reduced capacity and take his show up into the bleachers, it’s likely that this Halftime show will be one for the history books.

So, ahead of the game, peruse the following recipes for the perfect drink to accompany your game day spread. Remember to Drink Responsibly and it’s okay to rock a mocktail during the night.
