Adding a couple of cocktails to your Super Bowl menu is a great way to keep the energy up and get people really cheering for their team. In other words, put some team spirit in the air with some spirits in your glass. If you’re rooting for the Chiefs, try the Horsefeather. It’s the unofficial cocktail of Kansas City, and has been described as a “southern take on the Moscow Mule.”
If you’re supporting the 49ers, it only makes sense to sip on a San Francisco. The drink is fruity and slightly sweet. A splash of orange juice in this cocktail pays respect to the Super Bowl kicking off in Miami.
Decide with Decorations
If you’re hosting fans of both teams at your party, you’re already braver than most. To add another level of friendly competition to the watch party, pick up some party supplies showing support for both teams, and let people vote with their plates and cups! This is a great way to let your friends and family support their team, let people vote on a winner, and make sure clean up is easy.
Whether you’re a dedicated fan hosting the rest of your equally-dedicated family or just a casual football fan excited for a chance to invite some friends over, these recipes and decorations are sure to please. For more ways to host a memorable watch party, be sure to Like Lennar on Facebook.
