Super Bowl Cocktails War

Drinks with fruit on wooden board

The Super Bowl is about two teams at the peak of performance battling each other on the field. We decided to pit the most well known drinks from each of those cities against each other and create a Super Bowl cocktail war. We’re going to make drinks for the super bowl but wanted to get some votes on what to make. Be sure to check out of Super Bowl appetizers and snacks too!

The San Francisco 49ers vs the Kansas City Chiefs are the two teams going against each other. So we decided to do a Mai Tai versus a Kansas City Ice Water. We’ll let you guess which drink is from which city. Both of these two drinks are evenly matched and have a lot going for them. Now the Mai Tai is sweet and flavorful, the Kansas City Iced Water is light and refreshing.

First off we have the Kansas City ice water. This drink is delicious and honestly you won’t know it even has alcohol in it. They say the best defense is a good offense and this drink packs a punch, but in the sneaky fast way. Too many of these too quickly and you won’t remember anything past halftime.

Next up, we have the challenger, the San Francisco Mai Tai. This drink is fruity, slightly sweet and full of flavor. The rum and fruits mix together in a delicious medley. Some may say this is a girly drink, but why not honor the city playing the game by having one of these. And, they are pretty delicious. I don’t care who sees me with my pineapple garnished drink!
