Beer and football go together like peanut butter and jelly. You must have beer at your Super Bowl party. If you are playing a football-related drinking game — everyone choose a player, each time that player comes into contact with the ball you drink, if he fumbles or scores you chug! — stock up on a bunch of bottles and ice to keep them cold.
Have water and sodas on hand for those who choose not to partake in the drinking festivities.
Serving margaritas is a wonderful idea, but why not liven things up by offering two team related cocktails? Give guests rooting for New York long island iced teas. Offer New England fans glasses of Boston punch. Want these dangerously delicious recipes? Just
