Just because you’re having a Super Bowl party does not mean you have to be surrounded with low-rent snacks and warm beer. If you’re going to sit around eating or drinking things, they should either be healthful or extremely pleasurable. Don’t waste your time with crappy movie theater nachos when what you really want is a giant order of great nachos with real cheese and guacamole. (If you want the movie nachos, get them and enjoy.) The same holds for Super Bowl parties. Surround yourself with interesting and delicious things to occupy your hands and mouth, and you’ll enjoy the game that much more.
To supply our imaginary football party, here are some interesting cocktail recipes to try to class up your usual Super Bowl Party.
