Here at Roomster, we're getting pumped about the Super Bowl, therefore we decided to follow up our Super Bowl Party Recipe Guide, with an awesome drinks guide.


After all, every good party needs good drinks. Especially when the party simmers within competitive feelings among your guests. 

Remember, you're trying to maintain a chill, fun and feast like environment. 




Perfect Manhattan
Ingredients

Directions

Fill a cocktail shaker or small pitcher with ice. Add the bourbon, both vermouths, and the dash of bitters. Cover and shake vigorously, or stir, until combined and chilled, about 30 seconds.

Blue Hawaiian 
Ingredients
  • Light rum (I prefer the classic Captain Morgan)
  • Blue Curacao liqueur
  • pineapple juice
  • cream of coconut liqueura cherry and slice of pineapple (optional)

Directions

1 oz light rum (please tell me you will have a little Captain in you)
1 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
1 oz cream of coconut liqueur
2 oz pineapple juice
Garnish with a cherry, pineapple, and, of course, the classic tooth pick umbrella

If you, for some reason, find this recipe too stout try adding some Grenadine to sweeten the deal and make your glass a miniature punch bowl. If you find the recipe too sweet cut the amount of Blue Curacao and pineapple juice in half and enjoy.

Whiskey & Coke
Not every drink has to be fruity or tangy. We recommend Whiskey and Coke for any occasion. And, you cannot call yourself a drinker until you have had a proper Whiskey and Coke.

Ingredients


  • Cola (preferably Coca Cola Classic, avoid diet colas)
  • Whiskey of your choice (preferably Jack Daniels, Crown Royal for special occasions)

Directions

Grab a comfortable glass, you will be using it all night..

2 oz whiskey

about 10 oz cola

If you are new to the wonderful world of Whiskey tone the dosage down to about 1 to 1 1/2 oz whiskey and let the flavor grow on you. If you are an experienced whiskey drinker try some variety with different types of whiskey: Old Charter, Irish Jameson whiskey, and try some bourbo recommend Jim Bean
