Recipe Roundups

All the recipes you need for cocktails, juice blends, milkshakes and more.

Maybe you're playing the Super Bowl Drinking Game, maybe you're not. Either way, if you're having a Super Bowl party, you're gonna need drinks. Once you've stocked up on easy-drinking beer, (maybe the Sam Adams recreation of New Albion Ale? Or any of these junk-food-pairing-approved brews?) it's time to think about mixed drinks. Margaritas. Bloody Marys. Easy cocktails for those who don't want to crack open one Bud Black Crown after another.

Go for the touchdown with these easy recipes, from so-much-better-than-sour-mix fresh margaritas to bartender-approved spicy tequila concoctions. Can't decide between cocktails and beer? We've got beer cocktails too. If you're going to drink all day, you might as well drink deliciously. Get the recipes in the slideshow above »
