The Super Bowl is upon us. While beer might be the go-to for many people when it comes time to gather around the television, a cocktail can be a great thing to sip on while you watch as well.

Whether you’re looking for shots to have during halftime, or a delicious sipper to keep you going through the whole game, we’ve rounded up some excellent Super Bowl cocktails worth whipping up this year.

Fly Like an Eagle
 Liquid Lab NYC


2 Chunks of Fresh Ginger
1.5 oz. Gin
0.75 oz. Mint Infused Simple Syrup
0.5 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
Wit Beer

Directions: Add ginger to shaker and muddle until completely crushed. Add liquid ingredients (with the exception of the beer). Shake and strain over fresh ice, top with wit beer and give a quick stir. Garnish with fresh mint, lemon, and candied ginger (if available).

Mint Syrup: In a medium saucepan add 2 cups of water and 2 cups of sugar and 1 bushel of mint. Boil and steep for about 10 minutes. Remove excess mint and chill.

Patriots Playbook
 Liquid Lab NYC


1 Egg white
2. oz. Irish Whiskey
1. oz. Cinnamon Syrup
.5 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
2 Dashes of Angostura Bitters

Directions: Start with the egg whites. Separate the white from the yolk, add to shaker with 1 cube of ice and “dry shake” to create froth. Shake until the single cube has dissolved. Separate and set the egg white aside.

In a new shaker add the remaining ingredients. Add ice, and combine with the egg white. Shake again vigorously and strain into a martini glass. We used a “Spice Pen” to create a fun play book inspired garnish with ground cinnamon. If this is too complex you can also garnish with some bitters in the foam to create a swirly “cappuccino”-like effect.

Cinnamon Syrup In a medium saucepan add 2 cups of water and 2 cups of sugar and 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon. Boil and steep for about 10 minutes. Double strain to get out the excess cinnamon chunks, chill and serve.
