Say Cheers to Your Team on Game Day

On Sunday while your team is facing off in New Orleans (or perhaps waiting it out to try again next year), skip a pitcher of beer in favor of these classier cocktails.

On Sunday while your team is facing off in New Orleans (or perhaps waiting it out to try again next year), skip a pitcher of beer in favor of these classier cocktails. The Long Bar at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa passed along a few theme drinks to turn your party into an at-home cocktail smack down between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers. So while you're watching all the action go down in the Superdome, be sure to have a cocktail shaker on hand. Not a fan of either team? We too are equal opportunity cocktail drinkers, so sip away.

The Gold Rush (pictured above)

Inspired by the gold rush that began in Northern California in the late 1800's, this historically-minded drink showers the team in well-wishes for an exciting game.

INGREDIENTS:
• 1 oz Malibu Rum
• 1 oz Disaronno
• Pineapple Juice

Add all ingredients together and shake. Pour into highball glass with ice. Garnish with a lemon slice.

The Rave Nation

The potency of this cocktail is inspired by the Baltimore Raven's intense offense and one of the league’s most feared defenses. The drink, as well, is a force to be reckoned with.

INGREDIENTS:
• 1 1/2 oz Bacardi Torched Cherry Rum
• 1 Splash Pomegranate Juice
• Sprite

Pour sprite and rum in rocks glass and add a splash of pomegranate to create a layered effect.
