Celebrate Super Bowl 50 with These New Cocktail Recipes

February 5, 2016

This weekend millions will be gathered around their TVs watching the Super Bowl with their friends and family, where the Carolina Panthers will take on the Denver Broncos. While many are placing bets on who is going to pull out the win, we are focused on what drinks you should serve at the party. Inspired by the teams playing in this weekend's game, here are two drinks you should try.

Whether you are a Panthers fan or not, Carolina Front Porch Tea is an excellent match to the food commonly served at Super Bowl parties.
