Football fans show their fandom in many ways. From jerseys to flags to bumper stickers, manicures and more, finding new outlets to celebrate their team and show off their team colors is half the fun on game day. It really is a lot of fun and I’m trying to think of some great ways to enjoy it to the fullest. While some of us are lucky enough to get to a couple of game each season, most of love to spend time at home with family and friends, doing a little bit of “homegating.” A lot of amazing party hosting is done for these games, and I wanted to celebrate that!!
Homegating is awesome and really makes the games that much nicer, and more family friendly. And what’s homegating without having a super-awesome cocktail during the game! I’ve come up with some ideas that include my favorite Smirnoff Ice drinks and the results have been pretty great. The drinks are called FANtails and they are magical. You can see above I was playing around a couple of weeks ago with some super fun drinks loaded up with fruit. It was a big hit!!! Now, I’m looking to create a tasty drink that is all red, white, and blue like my favorite NY football team!! Woo Hoo!!
One catch, though…I want your help! I wanted to see if you had any insights into what drink combinations work the best. Even better…the best FANtails will be featured on the social channels of the brand and they’ll be awarded a prize(s) and ultimate bragging rights!!! So, are you with me???
To celebrate NY football, I’m looking to find out what red, white, and blue drinks you would use to create the ULTIMATE NY football FAN-tastic FANtail??? I think this FANtail is a winner since it looks pretty amazing and tastes just as good! It’s easy, too! Let’s the Smirnoff FANtails flow, baby!!
Slowly (no, seriously) layer the drinks in the following order:
- add ice
- then, 1 oz Grenadine to the top of the ice
- add ice
- then, 1 oz Blue Curacao to the top of the ice
- add ice
- finally, 1 oz Original Smirnoff Ice to the top
Picking a Smirnoff Ice flavor was a tough choice because there are so many good ones. I really love the Sparkling Pink Grapefruit and Watermelon Mimosa varieties, which could possibly substitute for the Grenadine red.
What do you think?
What do you love?
What do you think will be the most amazing FANtail?
Lay it on me!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!
Next week I’ll get getting into even more homegating awesomeness with some really great looking pieces, accessories, and more!! Stay tuned!!! Enjoy the games this weekend! Go blue!
